This Day in Georgia Civil War History

June 23, 1863

Tullahoma Campaign Began

The Union Army of the Cumberland began the Tullahoma Campaign against the Confederate Army of Tennessee. In a series of maneuvers, Union General William Rosecrans moved his army around the Confederate army of General Braxton Bragg, forcing them into a series of retreats, with very little fighting. When the campaign would end in early July, the Confederate army would be pushed completely out of middle Tennessee, into Chattanooga - on the border with Georgia. These two armies would meet in September, in the first major Civil War battle fought on Georgia soil.
