Following the devastating loss at the Battle of Chickamauga, Union General William Rosecrans retreated to Chattanooga, TN. Confederate General Braxton Bragg, looking to capitalize on his victory against Rosecrans, followed the Federals to Chattanooga and established positions on Missionary Ridge and Lookout Mountain, successfully putting the Union troops under siege and cutting off their supply line.
On October 17, General Ulysses S. Grant was given control over the newly-created Military Division of the Mississippi, effectively putting all Federal troops in the Western Theatre, including the Army of the Cumberland, under Grant’s control.
Grant ordered an immediate attack on the city and the Union forces crushed the heavily outnumbered confederates in as series of battles 'above the clouds' .With no tactical reserve in place, the thinly-manned Confederate line broke and fled from Missionary Ridge thus ending the Battles of Chattanooga.
Union possession of Chattanooga opened up the Deep South for a Union invasion setting the stage for Sherman’s Atlanta Campaign the following spring.
