  • Sorry, that's incorrect
    Answer:

    The excellent defensive terrain of northwest Georgia.  The landscape across which Sherman had to attack was criss-crossed by streams, rivers, ravines, ridges, and dense forests.  He claimed that such ground was a substantial force multiplier for Joe Johnston, an already formidable defensive general.  Johnston insisted that the ground, seen in person, was not as good for defense as Sherman and Jefferson Davis later claimed.
