"All things considered, Battleground 9: Chickamauga is a fitting tribute to the men who fought in two of America's bloodiest military engagements. More importantly, it underscores the incredible attention to detail and quality workmanship that goes into every TalonSoft design and serves as an important example of how even a dated war gaming system can successfully evolve over time.

MURFREESBORO: This bloody battle, fought over a three-day period along the Stones River near Nashville, was one of the costliest engagements of the American Civil War. In the end, William Rosecrans' Army of the Cubmberland overpowered Braxton Bragg's Confederates, forcing them to retreat ingloriously toward Chattanooga.
September 19-20, 1863
CHICKAMAUGA: During the following summer, Rosecrans' high-spirited Federals had continued pushing back the ragtag Rebel army beyond Chattanooga, until they reached the wooded banks of Chickamauga Creek. There Bragg's Confederates, now reinforced by James Longstreet's corps from the Army of Northern Virginia, surprised their now outnumbered foe along the banks of this "River of Blood". The resulting two-day melee was one of the firecest-fought and deadliest battles of the war, and resulted in one of the few Confederate victories for Bragg's Army of the Tennessee.
