General Grant Revisited At The Moccasin Bend Lecture Series
During the Civil War, Chattanooga was the Gateway to the Confederacy.
In the fall of 1863 - months after the Battle of Gettysburg in Pennsylvania - Union and Confederate troops fought for control of this area in the Battle of Chickamauga and the Battles for Chattanooga.
The Union prevailed here - but what was General Ulysses S. Grant’s role in the outcome?
Dr. Frank Varney is an author and a professor of U.S. and Classical History at St. Michael’s College in Vermont.
He’s the next speaker for this fall’s Moccasin Bend Lecture Series here in Chattanooga, presented by National Park Partners - on Monday, October 2nd starting at 7 PM at the Tennessee Aquarium IMAX Theater.
I spoke with him - and Tricia Mims, executive director of National Park Partners.
