Today in Georgia History:
February 3, 1807 Confederate general Joseph E. Johnston [photo] was born in Virginia. He attended West Point, graduating in 1829 in the same class as Robert E. Lee. In 1861, he resigned from the U.S. Army to offer his services to the Confederacy. In 1864, he commanded the Army of Tennessee during much of Sherman's Atlanta Campaign before being replaced by John Bell Hood. In 1865, Lee named Johnston to again head the Army of Tennessee, with responsibility for Confederate forces in Georgia, Florida, and South Carolina. Johnston's surrender to Sherman on April 26, 1865 resulted in the end of the Civil War for Georgia. He died March 21 1891 in Washington D.C.
