This Date in History, Sherman Captured Atlanta

On This date in history, September 2, 1864:  Union General William T. Sherman captured Atlanta.  I don't know what he wired and told President Lincoln about the capture.  I do remember reading about when he captured Savannah he wired the President and said something like "I present you  Savannah as a Christmas gift".

Maybe when he captured Atlanta he wrote the president and said something like, "I got you a Labor Day present, sorry about being late, but you wouldn't believe the mad crowds around here, but anyway, three guesses what I got you! - do you want some hints?"
