||After the Union defeat at New Hope Church, Maj. Gen. William T. Sherman ordered Maj. Gen. O.O.
Howard to attack Gen. Joseph E. Johnston’ s seemingly exposed right flank. The Confederates were ready for the
attack, which did not unfold as planned because supporting troops never appeared. The Rebels repulsed the attack
causing high casualties.
