Pigeon Hill at Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park, Georgia USA 6
Georgia, USA
Assault on Pigeon Hill, Kennesaw Mountain. On June 27, 1864, three brigades of 5,500 soldiers from Ohio, Indiana and Illinois charged Pigeon Hill. One Union brigade overran the Confederate rifle pits near this location while the other two other brigades crossed Old Mountain Road. The attack ran into felled trees and other Confederate-built obstacles on Pigeon Hill. As the Federals struggled over the obstructions and rough terrain, the entrenched Southerners opened fire with musketry and cannon. Some Confederates on Little Kennesaw even heaved boulders. The Union troops sought cover and the assault crumbled. By noon the Union forces had withdraw to Old Mountain Road. They returned to their lines. Federal casualties were 850, Confederate 250.

More About USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
