Recently, I heard from Evan Jones, one of the organizers of the 25th annual West Coast Civil War Conference. I attended this event back in October 2009, to see and talk to an impressive line-up of speakers, all focused on – what else – Chickamauga.
The event was a success, and raised $7,500, which the conference has donated to the Friends of the Raymond Battlefield association. If you don’t know, Raymond was a small but important engagement of the Vicksburg Campaign. The Rebel defenders were Gregg’s Brigade, later to become Chickamauga veterans.
