Abstract

West Virginia History, N.S. 5, No.1, Spring 2011 The Battles of Chickamauga and Chattanooga and the Organizations Engaged. By Henry V. Boynton, with a new foreword by Timothy B. Smith. (Knoxville: University of Tennessee Press, 2009. Various pagings.) A Chickamauga Memorial: The Establishment of America's First Civil War National Memorial Park. By Timothy B. Smith. (Knoxville: University of Tennessee Press, 2009. Pp. xi, 211.) The upcoming sesquicentennial of the American Civil War is forcing historians, both professional and amateur, to reevaluate the events of the war and the creation of America's memory of the events. Especially important is an understanding of how those who participated in the war chose to commemorate it. Not only did they honor their own memory and the memory of those fallen, but they offered a new interpretation of the Civil War, which became part of a greater American story. The University of Tennessee Press has added greatly to this conversation with the publication of two very fine works, A Chickamauga Memorial: The Establishment of America's First Civil War National Memorial Park, by Timothy Smith, and the reprint of three books consolidated into one volume, The Battles of Chickamauga and Chattanooga and the Organizations
