LCWRT Spring Field Trip: Stop at Hoover's Gap

The LCWRT Spring Field Trip included a bonus stop at Hoover's Gap on our way to explore the early phases of the Atlanta Campaign. This small site in Tennessee contains Beech Grove Confederate Cemetery, artillery pieces, and handy explanatory information, as well as a plaque for 18th Indiana Battery and a monument to Stewart's Division. Getting to see the ground at this crucial point of the Tullahoma campaign where Wilder's Lightning Brigade earned their name was a real treat.
