Snodgrass Hill - Chickamauga
by Steve Parrish
“The dead and wounded lay in heaps, literally piled upon each other…”
Many of the soldiers from our area fought with the 60th Alabama Infantry Regiment during the Civil War. Through the toils of war, they suffered greatly, and perhaps one of their most daunting task was in north Georgia near the Chickamauga Creek in November 1863. There, along with some other Alabama regiments, they lost many of their numbers trying to capture a Yankee stronghold known as Snodgrass Hill.
