Gen. Joseph E. Johnston had withdrawn from Rocky Face Ridge to the hills around Resaca GA. On the 13th, the Union troops tested the Rebel lines to pinpoint their whereabouts.
Civil War MonumentThe next day full scale fighting occurred, and the Union troops were generally repulsed except on the Rebel right flank where Sherman did not fully exploit his advantage.

On the 15th, the battle continued with no advantage to either side until Sherman sent a force across the Oostanula River, at Lay’s Ferry, towards Johnston’s railroad supply line.

Unable to halt this Union movement, Johnston was forced to retire.
