of the Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park.
 My focus is not on the General, but on the common soldier, the Private, the Corporal, the Lieutenant.

The Individual.

Many young men joined the army to escape the boredom and monotony of farm life.

What was it like for these young men far from home--seeking to "Save the Union" or protecting home and hearth from invasion--to find themselves in the turmoil and carnage of a battle--trying to save themselves and their comrades?

 What was it like to awaken that morning on September 19, 1863 in Chickamauga, Georgia, with the vividness of the daylight enhanced by the prospect of death in battle?

 What was it like to be in the forests of Chickamauga, neither Union nor Confederate soldiers knowing where their counterparts were?

 What was it like to hear volley after volley of musket balls whizzing through the woods, to experience the air bursts of exploding cannon shells, to smell the smoke of countless destructive blasts?

 And what was it like to experience in a flash a rifle ball finding its way home, knowing that one was mortally wounded?
