They had been routed at Chickamauga, reduced to eating acorns at Chattanooga. But on November 25, 1863, after two months of siege and suffering, the Army of the Cumberland took the offensive. Heavily reinforced by the recent arrival of fresh troops from Virginia and Mississippi, the same soldiers who had been swept from the field in September now stormed up the fiery slopes of Missionary Ridge, driving Confederate General Braxton Bragg’s entrenched army from a seemingly impregnable position.

Ordered to push ahead “at whatever cost of life and horse flesh,” a brigade of blue-coated cavalry reached Knoxville on the night of December 3, 1863. The news of Sherman’s approach raised the Rebel siege and secured east Tennessee, adding further laurels to one of the most epic and inspiring winter marches in the long and illustrious history of the United States Army.
