Historic Photos of Chickamauga-Chattanooga Campaign by James A. Hoobler

Turner Publishing announces a new release, the Historic Photos of Chickamauga-Chattanooga Campaign by James A. Hoobler, a 10 x 10 gift book of the pictorial narrative of the famous Civil War battle in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

Nashville, TN, December 06, 2007 --(PR.com)-- The History of Chickamauga Chattanooga Told Through Historic Photographs:

The Battle of Chickamauga is considered “the Gettysburg of the Western Theater,” the greatest Confederate victory in that theater. It was followed by a siege at Chattanooga, the longest endured by any Union army during the war. After three months, the Federal forces, now under Ulysses S. Grant, broke out in the Battle of Chattanooga, completely reversing General Braxton Bragg’s Chickamauga victory.

With fact-filled photo captions and chapter introductions by James A. Hoobler, Historic Photos of Chickamauga Chattanooga reveals the humanity and sacrifice of war and the destruction and rebirth of the region, in striking images selected from the Library of Congress, the Chicago History Museum, the Albert Gore Sr. Research Center at Middle Tennessee State University, the Chattanooga-Hamilton County Bicentennial Library, the Chicago Public Library-Special Collections and Preservation Division, the Chickamauga-Chattanooga National Military Park, and the personal collection of the author.

Turner Publishing has assembled a comprehensive collection of photographs surrounding the monumental battles of Chickamauga and Chattanooga and their aftermath. This 10 x 10 gift book beautifully showcases the black-and-white images and is complete with knowledgeable, well-researched narratives, weaving the story of their battles like never before.

Historic Photos of Chickamauga Chattanooga is third in a series of historic photos highlighting the key figures and events of the Civil War. Turner Publishing’s Historic Photos series has been acclaimed as a staple in the collection of anyone who loves history.
