  • September 18th, 1863 Battle of Chickamauga begins

    Article from Dave Powell from "Failure in the Saddle" on the fight for Reed's bridge. Minty's cavalry & Wilder's Lightning Brigade shine.
    The muffled drums sad roll has beat the soldier's last tatoo. No more on life's parade shall meet that brave and fallen few.

        At Alexander's Bridge, 149 years ago this afternoon, a teenager from Indiana becomes a hero, this is his story.

          Recommended reading for anyone interested in the battle.

          Peter Cozzens' This Terrible Sound

          Dave Powell's Maps of Chickamauga

          Dave Powell's Failure in the Saddle

          Dave Powell also is expecting his two volume study to be published next year.

          Dr. W.G. Robertson also published a series of articles in Blue and Gray Magazine on the battle, and while I don't agree with some of Robertson's conclusions, they are overall still a good read.

            Glenn Tucker's Chickamauga should also be on the list.

              Your right. I overlooked that.
