On July 22, 1864, McPherson was killed in the early stages of the Battle of Atlanta. Logan, now commanding the XVth Corps, took command of the Army of the Tennessee. He was the only volunteer [political] general to command an army in the field. Even though Logan turned a Union rout into victory Sherman replaced him with Gen. O. O. Howard.
