Buell might not have been able to hold Chattanooga, but might have held his job. Beauregard was deep in Mississippi and I doubt that Lee would have spared any of the AofNV. Troops might have been bought down from northern E.Tennessee, but any such response...

  • I just returned from a visit to the Chattanooga & Chicamauga National Military Park, and was very impressed with both the park and the staff. Sept. 19th & 20th marked the 149th anniversary of the Battle of Chicamauga. I encourage all who can attend to join me there next year.

  • My GGF was in Buell's Army after Shiloh and through Perryville. The descriptions of the long marches through northern Alabama, middle Tennessee and southern Kentucky are horrifying. Comments like, "Several men left behind on the road, they may come up tonight." and "Some men were lost on the road.

  • I'm planning a trip to Bardstown, KY next month and noticed they are very proud of their museum of the Civil War in the West. Have any of you been there or know anything about it? Sam Foster 17thky,blogspot.com

  • Thanks. I have a programmer looking into the presentation. I was able to put the archive in chronological order, but couldn't move the Preface to the number one position. My best option is to try to show only the latest post in the main view and direct members to the archive for the sake of continuity.

  • I have started a "150 years ago" blog about the 17 th KY Infantry, mainly for the information of my family. I would appreciate any comments or suggestions, since I am totally new at this. Except for the Preface, the entries are meant to be read chronologically. 17thky.blogspot.com Thanks, Sam
