    Battle of Lookout Mountain - Engraving of The Battle of Lookout Mountain - General Joe Hooker's Battle Above The Clouds by Thomas Nast.  Shows an incredible view of the battle.  There were low hanging clouds on the day of battle, so the top of the mountain was actually protruding through the low hanging clouds.  Frame measures 13" x 14 7/8".
    The Battle of Lookout Mountain was fought November 24, 1863, as part of the Chattanooga Campaign of the American Civil War.  Union forces under Major General Joseph Hooker assaulted Lookout Mountain, Chattanooga, Tennessee, and defeated Confederate forces commanded by Major General Carter L. Stevenson.  Lookout Mountain was one engagement in the Chattanooga battles between Major General Ulysses S. Grant's Military Division of the Mississippi and the Confederate Army of Tennessee, commanded by General Braxton Bragg.  It drove in the Confederate left flank and allowed Hooker's men to assist in the Battle of Missionary Ridge the following day, which routed Bragg's army, lifting the siege of Union forces in Chattanooga, and opening the gateway into the Deep South.
