FORT OGLETHORPE, Ga. — On Saturday, March 9, Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park will host the second presentation in its new “Emerging Scholars Lecture Series.” This one-hour lecture, titled, “Uncle Billy’s Boys – The 15th Army Corps at Chattanooga,” will be presented by Eric Burke in the Chickamauga Battlefield Visitor Center’s theater at 2 p.m.
Some of the most cutting-edge scholarship on the Civil War era is being conducted by graduate students at universities and colleges all around the nation, and this lecture aims to promote the work being done by the next generation of Civil War scholars.
Burke is a Ph.D. candidate at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, where he is researching the military operations and lessons learned by the 15th Army Corps during the Civil War. His presentation will explore how these soldiers’ unit identity and culture shaped their operations as they arrived in Chattanooga in November 1863. This presentation is made possible through the support of the park’s cooperating association, Eastern National.
