Formed in late 1861, the Army of the Tennessee was a Union army in the Western Theater of the American Civil War, named for the Tennessee River (and not to be confused with the similarly named Confederate force). Initially under the command of Major General Ulysses S. Grant in the Union’s District of West Tennessee, the army survived a severe test at the Battle of Shiloh and played an important role in both the Siege of Corinth and Battle of Vicksburg. Later, under William Tecumseh Sherman, James McPherson, Oliver Howard, and John Logan, it marched and fought from the Chattanooga Campaign, through the Relief of Knoxville, the Meridian Campaign, the Atlanta Campaign, the March to the Sea, the Carolinas Campaign, and to the end of the war and disbandment. The preliminary meeting for the formation of the Society of the Army of the Tennessee was held in the senate chamber at the state capitol in Raleigh, North Carolina on April 14, 1865. Membership was restricted to officers who has served with the Army of the Tennessee, with Sherman serving as President from 1869 to 1884. This partial record includes transcripts of the speeches and statements of prominent members and guests, reminiscences of the war, remembrances of the recently deceased, a detailed account of the proceedings, and information on the society’s philanthropic efforts, which included the erection of statues and monuments in Washington, D.C. Very good. Item #71066
