David Powell

In partnership with the National Park Service, Eastern National would like to invite you to join us at the Chickamauga Battlefield Visitor Center for a book signing with author David A. Powell, Saturday, Sept. 15, 2018, 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. as we commemorate the 155th anniversary of the Battle of Chickamauga. Powell’s most recent release is Decisions at Chickamauga: the Twenty-Four Critical Decisions that Defined the Battle.

Decisions at Chickamauga: Rather than looking into the narrative history of the battle, this work displays the “why” decisions were made, by examining the options that were available. General Braxton Bragg, commander of the Confederate Army, and General William Stark Rosecrans, Commander of the Union Army, were faced with great challenges that ultimately turned the tide for the confederacy. This book reveals the critical decisions based on information given as circumstances changed throughout the course of the battle. These critical decisions would ultimately determine the battle’s outcome.
