Confederate Weapons Manufacturing in Georgia

This is historian Jim Ogden of the Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park.  He’s discussing the confederate munitions manufacturing facilities in Central Georgia, including the weapons manufacturing in Macon and the powder works in Augusta, and how William T. Sherman’s operations in Georgia crippled the confederate war machine by destroying much of this capability.  This was delivered at Kennesaw State University in Kennesaw, Georgia on March 22, 2014.

  1. Jim Ogden is a legend in the North Georgia area. He is quite literally the man, the myth, the legend. He has his own Facebook page dedicated in his honor.
