(10-02) Joseph E. Johnston statue - downtown Dalton. Erected in 1912, it is the only monument to Johnston anywhere in the south. Johnston was vilified by Confederate leaders for not attacking Sherman. Historians, and Sherman himself, felt that Johnston's strategy to play for time was optimal and might have worked had Jefferson Davis not replaced Johnston with Hood later in the campaign
