Battle of Lookout Mountain (November 24th, 1863)

Using a shroud of fog Union soldiers attacked up the Mountain along with an impressive use of artillery to scatter the Confederates picketts. As the Union moved up the mountain they reached Cravens House. Though there was heavy action near the house the Union's 4 to 1 advantage helped the Union control the Mountain by midnight. While the battle of Lookout Mountain was most significant in that it made the Confederate right flank on Missonary Ridge vulnerable. To many the battle was more a skirmish than a battle. Casualties for the Battle were relatively light, with 408 Union and 1,251 Confederate.
