Defense of The Ridge


Chattanooga, Tennesssee – Missionary Ridge – November 25, 1863 – The Union forces under the command of General U.S. Grant that originally was planned as a limited assault to take the Rebel rifle pits at the base of the ridge turned into a general attack on the entire Confederate line.  This victory of Missionary Ridge secured Chattanooga for the Federal Forces.
