Regimental Histories: “A Scythe of Fire”

A Scythe of Fire is the history of the Eighth Georgia [Infantry Regiment] as experienced by those who carried its standard into battle: doctors and farmers, landowners and simple folk — each dedicated to victory, yet proud and unbroken in the face of defeat.”

The Eighth came in on the second assault of Fort Sanders, as part of Anderson’s Brigade, after Wofford’s and Humphrey’s initial attack was stalled.
