Re: [civilwarwest] Request for Information -- Tullahoma?
- I would like to offer you couple of good writings on the Tullahoma campaign:
In Shelby Foote's massive trilogy, book two - chapter 7 (Riot and
Resurgance) has a good description of the campaign on pages 663 - 675.
Also, in the Time-Life Series "Fight for Chattanooga", chapter 1, pages 1 -
43 is entirely devoted to Tullahoma, also with some good photos and
My favorite aspect of the Tullahoma period was an excerpt from a soldier's
letter home where he wrote that the name "Tullahoma" came from the Greek
"tulla" - meaning mud, and "homa" - meaning MORE mud !!
