Summary, etc.:
Like the great city sieges of history -- Berlin, Stalingrad, Sarajevo -- the fall of Atlanta, the prime urban center of the Confederacy during the American Civil War, was a historical instance of the tragedy of war overtaking civilian innocents. The destruction of Atlanta is an iconic moment in American history -- it was the centerpiece of the hugely successful book and movie Gone with the Wind.
