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.

Plastic or Open Carry v. Open Container. Nota bene: the arguments you are about to hear are irrefutable, if not necessarily logical. If you find yourself embroiled in a similar debate, you are strongly advised to seek the advice of local counsel.
