Overview

The campaign from Murfreesboro, Tennessee, to Chickamauga, Georgia, followed by the siege of Chattanooga, is one of the most dramatic stories of the entire Civil War. Union Major General William S. Rosecrans led a brilliant advance into Georgia, taking Chattanooga with the loss of only six men. Near Chickamauga Creek, Confederate General Braxton Bragg routed Rosecrans' army, then laid siege to it from the heights around Chattanooga. Major General Ulysses S. Grant, recently given command of virtually all Federal armies in the Western Theater, arrived to break the siege. A climatic Union charge routed Bragg's demoralized army. Historic Photos of Chickamauga Chattanooga tells this story and much more, for it includes the imporant struggle to preserve America's Civil War battlefields, which began with Chickamauga. Striking black-and-white images of aging veterans, reuniting to preserve their history, join photos of the rugged terrain over which they fought in 1863. This is a compelling American story told in photographs, with text by a noted historian.

Editorial Reviews

Midwest Book Review
In war there are always losses and great leader try to minimize them when and where they are able. "Historic Photos of Chickamauga Chattanooga" is a fascinating compilation of superbly executed and poignant black and white historic photographs telling the legendary Civil War story of Union General William S. Rosecrans and his taking of Chattanooga, Tennessee from defending Confederate forces wile losing only six of his own men in the process. A photo history of this dramatic campaign shows the harsh times and ugly realities of this historic American military conflict. With an accompanying text that is both informed and informative, "Historic Photos of Chickamauga Chattanooga" is an important addition for personal, academic, and community library Civil War Studies and American Photographic History reference collections.
civilwarnews.com
Historic Photos of Chickamauga-Chattanooga contains a myriad of photographs showing the areas, monuments, veterans' reunions and parades, and Spanish-American War camps of these battlefield parks. The whole volume is a fascinating presentation of the era during and following (mostly following) the war in that single area of Tennessee where, but for poor Southern generalship (Braxton Bragg), the course of the Civil War almost changed. Civil War News readers will enjoy having this book to read, refer to for the wonderful photos and as an addition to their library of the visual images of those great battlefields.
