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.

I decided to give a general impression of the action at the crest of Missionary Ridge as I found it impossible to show the entire movement in one picture. Chattanooga became the base for the Federals’ Atlanta Campaign led by General William T. Sherman
