Chickamauga


The fourth installment of Blue and Gray Magazine's Chickamauga series is out. It is the best and most accurate treatment of the battle to date. Also, the first three issues had more on the campaign leading up to the battle than anything else, even Cozzen's tome. So with this issue the battle gets going with day two, September 19th. I highly recommend this one for anyone interested in the battle.

Lee,

I haven't gotten my copy just yet. Who is the author? Dave Powell? Someone else? I'm not at home so I can't check my back issues. When you say most accurate, how does this version differ from, say, Peter Cozzens' book on the subject?

The previous numbers have been authored by Glenn Robertson, and I assume that to be the case in this installment. Speaking of...I'm off to the bookstore!
