This photo is from the Lookout Mountain Battlefield park. This mountain was a lightly held stronghold of the Confederacy, looking out at Chattanooga, Tennessee, hundreds of feet below. The battle fought here was literally fought “above the clouds.” It probably looked like this on the day Union troops scaled the imposing height. Confederates, few in number, withdrew from their stronghold without putting up much of a fight.
