The Battle of Chickamauga took place in northern Georgia on 19-20 September 1863. Confederate General Braxton Bragg faced off against Union General William S. Rosecrans. Rosecrans and two wings of his army were driven from the field early on during the second day, but a determined delaying action led by General George H. Thomas allowed most of the Union Army to escape to the safety of nearby Chattanooga, Tennessee. Chickamauga is considered a Confederate victory, since the Union Army was driven from the battlefield, but the Union Army retained control of Chattanooga, which was used as a base during the successful campaign to capture Atlanta during spring and summer 1864.
