Meet Author Lee Elder At Chickamauga And Chattanooga National Military Park

Tuesday, February 27, 2018

In partnership with the National Park Service, Eastern National would like to invite the public to meet author Lee Elder on Sunday, March 11 from 10 a.m.-2 p.m.   Mr Elder will be available inside the Chickamauga Battlefield Visitor Center to sign his 2018 publication, That Bloody Hill: Hilliard’s Legion at Chickamauga. 

Elder has an ancestor who served in Hilliard’s Legion, and his 13 years of research brought forth his first publication, That Bloody Hill: Hilliard’s Legion at Chickamauga.  

"Join us on Sunday March 11. Meet Author Lee Elder and get your signed copy of, That Bloody Hill: Hilliard’s Legion at Chickamauga.  Your purchase supports the programs at Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park.  Thank you for supporting our National Parks," organizers said.

Review of the book:

This study sheds new light on the fighting done by Hilliard’s Legion, a part of Archibald Gracie’s Brigade of Confederates, at the battle of Chickamauga.  Elder shows conclusively that Gracie’s command was never forced from the top of Horseshoe Ridge and that some men from Hilliard’s Legion penetrated to the top of the Ridge.  A reexamination of the battle’s conclusion highlights the Legion’s role in the final movement.  Included in this study is a complete roster with biographical notes.

All by the same play book. All from average people. We want this, you have this, we get this. I worked with TVA as a ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: The Greatest 4 Minutes

I would venture to say I know more sports trivia than the next guy.

Oh, for decades I’ve know the annual Army-Navy football game, the latest just played this weekend, was special. A half-century ... (click for more)
