The Gap - part 10
The discussion of the gap at Chickamauga is now over. I'm still working on answering a few comments brought out by Dave Powell, currently have too little time to give to the subject. But I will get it done. I think the discussion went well. I didn't expect everyone to agree with me but I think we all thought a bit more about the gap than we normally would have. I think this also illuminates that there are plenty of minor battle events that warrant fuller examinations in the western theater. Just because its not Gettysburg doesn't mean we only deserve one general battle overview every couple of decades. I can think of roughly a dozen minor battle events that would be interesting as full examinations that probably will never be done because it didn't happen at Gettysburg.
