      Got this email today from BGES and thought I would pass it on - Kudos to

      This is the third in a series of Civil War battlefield guides published by
      the Nebraska Press and edited by Civil War scholars Brooks D. Simpson, Mark
      Grimsley and Dr. Steven E. Woodworth, the author of this particular guide.
      Dr. Woodworth is a well-known author and an expert in Chickamauga-Chattanooga
      events of the Civil War, having previously authored such works as Six Armies
      in Tennessee: The Chickamauga and Chattanooga Campaigns, A Deep Steady
      Thunder: The Battle of Chickamauga (Civil War Campaigns and Commanders), and
      the recently published This Grand Spectacle: The Battle of Chattanooga. As
      with his previous works, the reader is impressed with Woodworth's general
      knowledge of his subject matter, both in general context and detail, and his
      ability to write in a clear, succinct style useful to both the scholar and
      the layperson.


      Besides serving as a battlefield guide, Chickamauga is also an excellent
      introduction for those with no prior knowledge or reading on the battle
      itself or the Civil War in Chattanooga. The guide is organized into several
      sections with a brief introduction to set the context of the battle and to
      introduce the visitor center. Woodworth sets out an overview of each day of
      the battle (Sept. 19-20, 1863). He then takes the reader along a tour of the
      battlefield which is, geographically and chronologically, similar to the
      actual movements of the battle itself. The tour is similar to the
      tape-recorded tour provided by the National Park Service at the visitor
      center, but far more detailed. The tour begins at the site of the initial
      action on the morning of Sept. 19th near Reed's Bridge and concludes at the
      site of Thomas' final battle line on the afternoon of Sept. 20th (where he
      earned the title "the Rock of Chickamauga.").
