    Answer:

    Atlanta.  After the fall of Atlanta on September 1, 1864, Confederate General John Bell Hood led the Army of Tennessee north towards the Union supply center at Nashville in an attempt to divert William T. Sherman's attention from the underbelly of the Confederacy.  Instead, Sherman decided to leave his supplies behind and allow his army to forcibly secure its provisions from Confederate citizens during the "March to the Sea."  He detached General John Schofield's Army of the Ohio to counter Hood's advance.
