Fort Oglethorpe, GA: On Saturday, May 13, at 2 pm, Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park will present a special 45 minute program that will look at class conflict within the ranks of the Confederate Army of Tennessee. This program will begin at the Chickamauga Battlefield Visitor Center and will car caravan to Brock Field.

Participants will catch a glimpse of the class issues that began dividing the Confederate Army in 1863 as some soldiers began grumbling that the conflict had become a “rich man’s war and a poor man’s fight.” This program will look at several cases where tensions within the ranks began to show as the Army of Tennessee entered the Battle of Chickamauga. 

As a reminder, please dress appropriately for conditions and bring along a bottle of water and a folding chair if you like.
