Image of the Week: Battle of Chattanooga

This chromolithograph, produced in 1880, depicts the 1863 Chattanooga Campaign of the Civil War.  After a series of successful attacks led by U.S. Grant on November 23-24, the Federals would hold the “Gateway to the Lower South” until the end of the War.  For more Civil War artwork, check out the Library of Congress Civil War collection here.
