      Well Bragg didnt want his army trapped in the city either, look what had just happened eleven weeks earlier.  Bragg was blind to the Federal movements to his SW, Wheeler only had one regiment covering a fifty mile front and when the Federals suddenly appeared far to his south, Bragg reacted to protect his line of supplies.

      IMO the only reason (excuse) Bragg could have had to abandon 
      Cattanooga without a fight was that he planned to pull off a dipsy 
      doodle on Rosecrans, defeat him in detail, drive him South or West and 
      retake it. Which he failed to do.
