The Battle of Chickamauga was fought two months after Gettysburg, on September 19th and 20th 1863, and was the largest battle fought in the western theater during the American Civil War. In a war known for its bloody battles only Gettysburg surpassed Chickamauga for the number of casualties suffered, 34,624. Post-war it was the first of the Civil War battlefields to be preserved and is the largest, at 9,523.48 acres, of the National Military Parks. During discussions here on the forum, it was mentioned that Slipdigit's ancestor, William David Tindal, fought at Chickamauga with K Co., 39th Alabama Infantry. Since, I live quite near the battlefield and visit regularly to hike with my dogs I told him I'd gather information and pictures to show where his relative fought. My travelling companions: Max is a 103lb male Abbie is a 90lb female I'll post items here to document our travels through the battlefield and let Slipdigit see where his ancestor fought.
