Storyline

1864 After a huge battle and the brutal shelling of the population of Atlanta, Federal troops ("Yanks") take control of the city. Their plan is to use all of the goods remaining in the warehouse district of Atlanta to outfit their army for the upcoming March to the Sea, which they hope will end the War Between the States. Confederate spies move into the warehouse district, disguised as Yanks, to take stock of what is still there that might be of use to the army of the north. They find a lot. The word comes down from Confederate command to burn the entire district, destroying vast quantities of goods and uprooting hundreds of families that have been in the area for decades. "The Burning of Atlanta" is the story of the destruction of a major city near the end of the war, and the desperation and terror this causes in the lives of those who watch their entire society collapse around them.

So laconic and lazy it is almost impossible to watch.
20 November 2020 | by docshowsSee all my reviews

From the opening shots until the merciful end this is an incredibly awful movie. If the Battle for Atlanta was this laid back lazy and disorganized Shermancould have walked down Peachtree street and strucka match with little to no resistance. Iveseenbetter direction and acting in badHigh School plays. Thhe only thing believable is that the director had no clue what he was doing, no budget for extras or effects, and no talent pool for casting. I wasted money and time that I will never get back on thus film. Do yourself a favor and leave it alone as it deserves.
