What’s Next for Civil War Cycling?

What’s next for Civil War Cycling? Our guidebook, Bicycling Chickamauga Battlefield, is on-track for publication for the 2021 cycling season. Chickamauga battlefield is in Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia, less than ten miles from Chattanooga, Tennessee. Along the banks of Chickamauga Creek on September 19–20, 1863, nearly 35,000 Americans were casualties of this second-deadliest multi-day battle in the U.S. Civil War. (The first was Gettysburg. Antietam was the deadliest single day of fighting.) The National Park Service summarizes this very complicated battle, here.
