    Map of Chickamauga, GA battlefield - Sept. 19 and 20, 1863
    This map shows location of forces around Lookout Mountain at the time of the Battle of Chickamauga on September 19 and 20, 1863. As noted in the Library of Congress citation, the direction indicator at the top of the map is incorrect. North and west should be interchanged to orient the map correctly.

    Riley and Stuart Hoskinson served at a field hospital at Crawfish Spring, located in the lower right of the map. They were captured by the Confederate Army at this location on September 20, 1863. On September 25, they escaped and fled west to Lookout Mountain, then north across the Mountain to Chattanooga, TN, arriving at the Union Army encampment there on September 27.
