American Decisive Civil War Campaign (1863)
The Tullahoma Campaign took place in early and mid 1863 after the Battle of Stones River and before the Battle of Chattanooga and the Battle of Chickamuga.
General William S. Rosecrans, the Union Commander, waged what is considered a great and brilliant campaign against Braxton Bragg, the Confederate Commander. This Campaign was composed of hotly contested by relatively small battles when compared to better known battles. The great achievement in this campaign was Rosecrans out maneuvering Bragg and taking Middle Tennessee without heavy losses. This Campaign also shows an army being used, at times, as a large guerrilla force.
This campaign has been overshadowed by the Battle of Gettysburg and the Siege of Vicksburg but is without a doubt one of Rosecrans's finest achievements.
