Wargaming Chickamauga



Confederate Order of Battle

The organization of the Confederate Army of Tennessee changed radically during the Chickamauga Campaign.  The Confederate government finally saw the danger to Georgia and Eastern Tennessee after the Union army crossed the Tennessee River, and began sending massive reinforcements.  To handle the influx of these new units the commanding officer, General Braxton Bragg, made a number of organizational changes.  In addition, he completely reorganized the command structure of the army after the first day of battle while still in the face of the enemy.


The Confederate Order of Battle pages are in four parts:


The Campaign
Here you will find the strength and organization of the Army of Tennessee at the beginning of the Chickamauga Campaign, and follow it at the division level as reinforcements are integrated into the command structure.


September 19th
A look at the strength and organization of the Army on the first day of the battle.  Since many of the reports don’t distinguish between the battle starting on Sept. 18th or 19th  (although many do), I have decided on using Sept. 19th as the beginning of the battle for the purposes of this Order of Battle.


September 20th
The organization of the Army of Tennessee on the second day of the battle.  These pages report unit strengths for the second day, where available.  It also shows how the Army’s command structure was completely changed during the night.


This page reports the casualties for the Army of Tennessee by regiment for the entire battle.
