Battle of Resaca
Confederate Order of Battle

          Doing my research, I found there was not a Order of Battle for any of the battles in the Atlanta Campaign. I went through the Official Records and unit pages to create this Order of Battle. When looking at the unit pages, I looked to see that they actually participated in the Battle of Resaca. Too many times, it stated it participated in the Atlanta Campaign, but upon further digging found they did not fight in the battle or they were a reserve unit sitting in the back lines. There was one website I thought would give me more clarification, but it would not allow me to enter the website and did not have a point of contact.
