This map depicts the movement of Union (blue) and Confederate (red) forces at the end of the Chattanooga Campaign in November 1863. The Union positions, led by Generals Sherman and Thomas, are shown advancing across the Tennessee River and up Missionary Ridge, resulting in a retreat of General Bragg's Confederate forces to Dalton, Georgia. Bragg's defeat was the final confederate position in Tennessee, and his withdrawl set up Sherman's Atlanta Campaign in 1864. Cartographically, the map features topography that is rendered by finely drawn hachuring along with several railroads and the street grid of Chattanooga that are well depicted. Lithographed by the Graphic Company.
