    While not a photo of Riley and Stuart Hoskinson, it is easy to imagine them pausing here exactly as shown while Riley penned his "notes of our night's march" on Sept. 26, 1863 as they fled across Lookout Mountain during their escape from capture by the Confederate Army.

      SUMMARY:  Photograph of the War in the West. These photographs are of the Battle of Chattanooga, September-November 1863. After Rosecrans' debacle at Chickamauga, September 19-20, 1863, Bragg's army occupied the mountains that ring about the vital railroad center of Chattanooga. Grant, brought in to save the situation, steadily built up offensive strength, and on November 23-25, burst the blockade in a series of brilliantly executed attacks. The photographs, probably all taken the following year when Chattanooga was the base for Sherman's Atlanta campaign, include scenes on Lookout Mountain, stormed by Hooker on November 24.
