George Barnard’s Battle of Resacca, (sic) GA, No.4, silver print.
Barnard was Sherman’s selected documentarian.
A stark look at the battlefield after the carnage in May 1864 perpetrated during Sherman’s destructive march through Georgia. Striking in that in the scene there is virtually no sign of life-no soldiers, abandoned breastworks, a singular surviving tree adjacent to an untraveled road.
The name “Resaca” is misspelled on the photo’s border; “Resacca” is what appears on the print.
Monochromatic and striking.
Borders toned. Else fine. 14-3/16” x 10” (photo); 15-15/16” x 12-7/8” (printed mount).
