Publisher's Summary

From mid-August to mid-September 1863, Union major general William S. Rosecrans's Army of the Cumberland maneuvered from Tennessee to north Georgia in a bid to rout Confederate general Braxton Bragg's Army of Tennessee and blaze the way for further Union advances. Meanwhile, Confederate reinforcements bolstered the numbers of the Army of Tennessee, and by the time the two armies met at the Battle of Chickamauga, in northern Georgia, the Confederates had gained numerical superiority.

Although the Confederacy won its only major victory west of the Appalachians, it failed to achieve the truly decisive results many high-ranking Confederates expected. In The Chickamauga Campaign, Steven E. Woodworth assembles eight thought-provoking new essays from an impressive group of authors to offer new insight into the complex reasons for this substantial, yet ultimately barren, Confederate victory.

    "Specific aspects of the campaign in detail"

    This book is intended for those well versed in the basic campaign, not for a novice. With that in mind, the authors do an excellent job of breaking out certain interesting and possible lesser known aspects of the entire campaign.

    "A great set of essays"

    This Audiobook is essentially several essays from various historians about different commanders involved with the Chickamauga Campaign of 1863. There is also a fascinating outline of Henry V Boynton, a combatant who later founded the National Military Park system as we know it today. A very good and thorough study of the subjects though it's not necessarily a blow-by- blow account of the battle of Sep 19-20, 1863. Very useful nonetheless!
