Chattanooga | Fight for Tunnel Hill | Nov 25, 1863

Chattanooga, Tennessee

To pry the Confederates out of their position on Missionary Ridge, General Ulysses S. Grant planned to attack the Confederate line on both flanks.  General Joseph Hooker would strike the southern end of Missionary Ridge while General William T. Sherman’s troops attacked the northern end of the Confederate line at Tunnel Hill.  On the morning of November 25, 1863, Sherman launched a series of piecemeal attacks against General Patrick R. Cleburne’s division on Tunnel Hill, with no success.
