Battle of Chickamauga 1863
By Mary L. Bushong

1     The battle of Chickamauga in the northwest corner of Georgia occurred mainly because of incorrect assumptions. These assumptions led to the bloodiest two days of battle in the Civil War.
2     Union General Rosecrans was wanting to control the city of Chattanooga, which was a rail center. He managed to force Confederate General Bragg out of the city. General Bragg took his troops a short distance south to the town of La Fayette, Georgia.
3     Instead of re-grouping his scattered men in Chattanooga, Rosecrans decided to follow Bragg south. He was unaware that Bragg was re-supplying and re-grouping his men in La Fayette.
