"General Gordon Granger: Savior of Chickamauga"

Thursday, Apr 3 12:00p
Saratoga Springs Public Library Saratoga Springs, NY

Gordon Granger was from upstate New York, went to West Point and spent his career in the U.S. Army. He rose to prominence in the Civil War, playing major roles in the Tullahoma, Chickamauga, Chattanooga and Mobile campaigns. Immediately after the war, as commander of all U.S. troops in Texas, his June 19 order freeing slaves was one of the most significant documents of Reconstruction, prompting "Juneteenth" celebrations that continue to this day all over the United States.
