A Sesquicentennial Study
December 12-15, 2012
Jim Ogden from Murfreesboro, Tennessee
We close the year with a special treat for you, Jim Ogden has agreed to do a detailed walking tour of the campaign and battle of Stones River. Special because of the many people who we work with I view Jim as one of the top three most prepared historians to lead a tour. He is exhaustively thorough and while this is not his primary battlefield (Chickamauga and Chattanooga is) this is a site he can let his hair down and lead a tour for the fun of it. If you know Jim, you know the program will be well prepared and filled with interesting antecdotes—held within days of the 150th anniversary of the battle this is as close to personal as you will be allowed to get. The first day covers the approaches and Confederate occupation in and around Murfreesboro. The second day covers the fighting on December 31st and the last day finishes the fighting on December 31st and covers the assaults on January 2nd. The battle was exceptionally bloody and it gave Lincoln a much needed victory.
Limited to 22 people.
