Saving Reed’s Bridge and Brown’s Ferry

June 23, 2015

I have been busy of late, sort of overwhelmed by various things, including the finishing details of volume II of The Chickamauga Campaign, and working on some other writing projects I have due. Vol. II should be at the printers soon, very soon. I will let folks know when it happens.

I wanted to post here, however, about a new appeal from the Civil War Trust, for a chance to save 42 acres in the Chickamauga-Chattanooga area. The trust is working to save another 30 acres at Reed’s Bridge, and a 12 acre parcel at Brown’s Ferry, site of the Federal crossing on the night of October 27, 1863.

Here is the link to the CWT’s appeal:

they need approximately $120,000, and it is nearly a 6 to 1 match.

I am happy to report that for those of you who attended the Chickamauga Study Group Seminar last March, we raised enough money to donate $900.00, which I sent off today.

Take a bow, all of you who contributed.
