It was a time when armies maneuvered and shadow-boxed. While the November battle of Chattanooga may have been the most significant during this time period, there was plenty of fighting—both military and political. This session highlights decisions, actions and personalities that set the table for the desperate and decisive campaigns that followed in the spring of 1864.
Lecturer: Fred W. Kiger ’74 (’77 MAT) leads our Civil War battlefield study programs and teaches several GAA courses each semester. He is the creator of the field guide The Civil War: A History of the War Between the States (Workman) and has two degrees from UNC, a bachelor’s in history and a master of arts in teaching with an emphasis in history.
