This is the eighth in this series that brings a thoughtful and analytic vibe to Civil War study. In this campaign, decisions were made in Sewanee, Cowan, Winchester, Decherd, Estill Springs, Tullahoma, Wartrace, Liberty Gap, Bell Buckle, Hoover’s Gap, and Murfreesboro. The campaign was an effort by Union General William S. Rosecrans’s Army of the Cumberland to force Confederate General Braxton Bragg’s Army of Tennessee to leave Middle Tennessee and thus put pressure on Chattanooga. He did succeed in the Summer of 1862. The author, Michael R. Bradley taught history at Motlow State College in Tullahoma and has written several books on the Civil War.
