August 16th to September 22nd

At the opening of this campaign Bragg, commanding the Confederate Army, held Chattanooga. Rosecrans, commanding the Union Army occupied the western base of the Cumberlands from McMinneville to Winchester. Crittenden's Corps, the left of the Union Army was thrown over the mountains into the Sequatchie Valley, and advanced into the Tennessee Valley above Chattanooga as far as Kingston, to create the impression of a junction with Burnside from Knoxville for an attack upon Chattanooga from that direction. Meantime Thomas' Corp (the center) crossed the Cumberlands to the vicinity of Shellmound, the Tennessee River, and Raccoon Mountains, ascended Lookout at Johnson's Crook, and descended into McLemore's Cove at Steven's Gap. McCook's Corps (the right), with Mitchell's Cavalry Corps crossed the Cumberland to Stevenson, the river and Raccoon Mountains, and crossing Lookout at valley head advanced to Alpine and Summerville. Bragg to save his communications, and to be in a position to meet Rosecrans in front wherever he should emerge from the mountain gorges, evacuated Chattanooga, and the Tennessee Valley above, and retired via Rossville and Ringgold to LaFayette behind Pigeon Mountains, but held his right firm south of and near Lee and Gordon's Mill at the crossing of the Chickamauga. Crittenden withdrew through Sequatchie Valley, crossed the
Tennessee and advanced to Wauhatchie.
