Battle Of Chattanooga
  • The last days of September through October, 1863, Gen. Braxton Bragg’s army laid a blockade to the Union army under Gen. William Rosecrans at Chattanooga cutting of it’s supplies. On October 17 Gen. Ulysses S. Grant received command of the Western armies; he moved to support Chattanooga and replace Rosecrans with Gen. George Thomas. A new supply line was established. Gen. William T. Sherman arrived with his four divisions in mid-November and the federals began offensive operations on November 23-24. Union forces struck out and captured Orchard Knob and Lookout Mountain. On November 25, Union soldiers assaulted and carried the seemingly impregnable Confederate position on Missionary Ridge. One of the Confederacy’s two major armies routed. The Federals held Chattanooga the “Gateway to the Lower South” which became the supply and logistics base for Sherman’s 1864 Atlanta Campaign.
