Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park invites the public to participate in a special one-hour program at Chickamauga Battlefield at 2 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 6.
In conjunction with the 150th anniversary of the Iuka and Corinth, Mississippi campaign of the autumn of 1862, join a Park Ranger to discuss the difficulties and strains that erupted between Generals Ulysses S. Grant and William Rosecrans during this pivotal northern Mississippi campaign. These difficulties between the two men led to dire consequences for one of them a year later during the Chattanooga campaign. The program begins at the Chickamauga Battlefield Visitor Center and then will car caravan to Rosecrans’ headquarters. Visitors are welcome to bring lawn chairs for this special program.
