The Georgia 39th Infantry commemorated the 157th anniversary of the Battle of Ringgold Gap with a living history program Saturday afternoon, Nov. 28, at the Confederate Maj. Gen. Patrick Cleburne statue on U.S. Highway 41 in Ringgold. The battle was fought Nov. 27, 1863, by the Confederate and Union armies during the American Civil War. The five-hour battle resulted in the Confederate victory of Cleburne and gave the Army of Tennessee safe passage to retreat through the Ringgold Gap mountain pass.
