Norman Dasinger, Jr. on Chattanooga: Rosecrans & Grant vs. Bragg
In the Fall of 1863, both armies sought to control Chattanooga, the gateway to the Confederacy. They clashed first in September near a creek called "Chickamauga." The Confederates, reinforced by the timely arrival of two divisions from the Army of Northern Virginia, won that contest. The route of the Federals drove them back into the city of Chattanooga. In withdrawing, Rosecrans failed to secure the high ground surrounding Chattanooga and quickly found that his supply line was compromised. Supplies had to follow a torturous path into Chattanooga and the potential capitulation of the Federals may have become a real possibility. But then entered Union Gen. Ulysses S. Grant, changing the tide of history. Historian Norm Dasinger, Jr., simplifies the complex Battles for Chattanooga and shares stories of interesting characters that fought.
