"Linton's sharp focus on the battlefield, many illustrations, and succinct text should appeal to academics and Civil War enthusiasts alike."
—Kenneth W. Noe, author of Perryville: This Grand Havoc of Battle
The September 1863 Battle of Chickamauga, in which Confederate forces under Braxton Bragg defeated Union troops commanded by William Rosecrans, was the bloodiest engagement in the western theater of the Civil War. Chartered in 1890 and dedicated in 1895, the Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park is the first and largest of our country’s memorial Civil War battlefields. In 2002 alone more than eight hundred thousand people visited the park, which is located in northwest Georgia near the Tennessee border.
Chickamauga: A Battlefield History in Images is arranged for use during a driving tour of the park but also serves as an attractive and unique keepsake. Book in hand, visitors will appreciate as never before the experiences of the battle’s actual participants. Civil War scholars and enthusiasts will find a valuable new source for pondering tactical moves and unraveling historic controversies.
