Following the disastrous defeat at Chickamauga, Union forces were in disarray and the tactically vital city of Chattanooga was under siege and on the brink of falling. The situation required outstanding leadership and President Abraham Lincoln decided Ulysses Grant was the man for the occasion. In early October, Grant was promoted to command of the Military District of Mississippi and told to clean up the mess created by Chickamauga. With those orders began the Chattanooga Campaign. This book tracks how, over the next three months, Grant orchestrated the movements of three Union Armies and led them into a series of battles that saw them first raise the siege of Chattanooga, then, in three battles over three days, break the Confederate army entrenched in the heights overlooking Chattanooga.
