Summary note
Not far from Chattanooga in northern Georgia, the Confederacy won one of its most decisive battles. This guide uses firsthand accounts to illustrate how this skirmish, only two days long, turned into one of the bloodiest battles of the Civil War with 34,000-plus Union and Confederate soldiers killed, wounded, or captured. Explicit directions to points of interest and maps detailing troop position, roads, rivers, elevations, and tree lines as they were 130 years ago help bring the Battle of Chickamauga to life. -- Back cover.
