On To Chattanooga: A Campaign of Contrasts

Stones River National Battlefield, July 15, 2017

Saturday, July 15, 2017, saw much activity at the Stones River National Battlefield with living history demonstrations including Civil War period music, artillery demonstrations, United State Sanitary Commission, etc.

Thinks about it – the Confederate withdrawal after the Battle of Stones River (aka the Battle of Murfreesborough) opened the door for the Federal army to move on to Chattanooga, which lead to Atlanta, which lead to Sherman’s March to the Sea.
