1863 Signed and Numbered Limited Edition Monument Replicas


On September 17, 1863, Union Major General Rosecrans, headed north towards Chattanooga, Tennessee, intending to meet and beat the XXI Army Corps.  As Confederate General Braxton Bragg marched north on the 18th, his cavalry and infantry fought with Union cavalry and mounted infantry which were armed with Spencer repeating rifles.  Fighting began in earnest on the morning of the 19th, and Bragg’s men hammered but did not break the Union line.  The next day, Bragg continued his assault on the Union line on the left, and in late morning, Rosecrans was informed that he had a gap in his line. In moving units to shore up the supposed gap, Rosencrans created one, and Lieutenant General James Longstreet’s men promptly exploited it, driving one-third of the Union army, including Rosecrans himself, from the field.  Major General George H. Thomas took over command and began consolidating forces on Horseshoe Ridge and Snodgrass Hill.  Although the Rebels launched determined assaults on these forces, they held until after dark. Thomas then led these men from the field leaving it to the Confederates.  The Union retired to Chattanooga while the Rebels occupied the surrounding heights.


The monument is located at the intersection of Reeds Bridge Road and Jays Mill Road, Chickamauga National Battlefield, and was dedicated in 1890.
