About this product
- DescriptionFollowing the disastrous defeat at Chickamauga, Union forces were in disarray and the tactically vital Chattaoga was under siege and on the brink of falling. Secretary of War William Stanton ordered Ulysses Grant to send the Army of Tennessee to reinforce Chattaoga. Grant had already reacted. The situation was dire. It required outstanding leadership to rescue the situation. President Abraham Lincoln decided Grant was the man for the occasion. In early October, Grant was promoted to command of the Military District of Mississippi and told to clean up the mess created by Chickamauga. With those orders a new campaign began: the Chattaoga Campaign. This book tracks how over the next three months Grant would orchestrate the movements of three Union Armies - The Army of the Cumberland, The Army of the Tennessee, and two Corps from the Army of the Potomac. He would lead them into a series of battles that saw them break the siege of Chattaoga before in three battles in three days the Union forces broke the Confederate army entrenched in the heights overlooking Chattaoga.
