Will Glasco talked about the second bloodiest battle in the Civil War, the Battle of Chickamauga, which was fought in northwestern Georgia September 19-20, 1863. The campaign started with a successful Union advance against Chattanooga, forcing the Confederate Army of Tennessee to retreat into Georgia. But the battle took a turn at Chickamauga Creek, with a timely Confederate charge routing Federal troops and resulting in the Union’s most significant loss in the Western Theater. Mr. Glasco examined the fighting at Chickamauga Creek and the opportunities missed by the Confederates in trying to regain control of Chattanooga.

“The Battle of Chickamauga: The Confederate High Tide in the West” was the monthly sesquicentennial Brown Bag Lunch Talk at the Museum of the Confederacy. close
