Echoes of Battle
The Struggle for Chattanooga
By Richard A. Baumgartner
and Larry M. Strayer
Unparalleled in its blending of photographic imagery and riveting accounts of soldier-participants, this book offers a unique portrayal of the Civil War's strategically important Tullahoma, Chickamauga and Chattanooga campaigns. The authors draw from hundreds of 1863 diaries, journals, letters and official reports, as well as memoirs, reminiscences and regimental histories to provide in-depth insight into the experiences of Union and Confederate enlisted men, and their commanding officers.

This is history of the Civil War's common soldier at its best." - Military Images Magazine
"Blue Acorn Press has scored another coup. Echoes of Battle is a blockbuster. The authors have a talent for winnowing the seed from the chaff found in multitudes of disparate Civil War sources and weaving it into a well-organized and balanced book." - Edwin C.
