45486DH Hill at Dug Gap
- Mar 10, 2008So what's the general feeling on DH Hill's performance at Dug Gap
during the Chickamauga campaign?
From some limited reading it appears to me that if Hill would have
shown a bit more fire in getting his Corps through the Pigeon Mt. gaps
that Hindman might in turn have kept his nerve and followed through on
initiating the attack on Negley in McLemore's Cove.
Hill gave a series of excuses: Cleburne being sick, too much debris in
dug gap to get through quickly, etc...were these excuses legitimate or
was Hill just being difficult?
