Abandoned mansion, Lookout Mountain, Tennessee. This home, is located adjoining The Cravens House, sight of fierce fighting during the Battle of Lookout Mountain.
The Battle of Lookout Mountain was fought November 24, 1863, as part of the Chattanooga Campaign of the American Civil War. Union forces under Maj. Gen. Joseph Hooker assaulted Lookout Mountain, Chattanooga, Tennessee, and defeated Confederate forces commanded by Maj. Gen. Carter L. Stevenson. Lookout Mountain was one engagement in the Chattanooga battles between Maj. Gen. Ulysses S. Grant’s Military Division of the Mississippi and the Confederate Army of Tennessee, commanded by Gen. 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 opened the gateway into the Deep South.
