What were the results of the battle of Chattanooga?

In late Spring 1862, the Confederacy split its forces in Tennessee into several small commands in an attempt to complicate Federal operations. The Union had to redistribute its forces to counter the Confederate command structure changes. Major General Ormsby Mitchel received orders to go to Huntsville, Alabama, with his division to repair railroads in the area. Soon, he occupied more than 100 miles along the Nashville & Chattanooga and Memphis & Charleston railroads. In May, Mitchel and his men sparred with Major General Edmund Kirby Smith's men. After Mitchel received command of all Federal troops between Nashville and Huntsville, on May 29, he ordered Brigadier General James Negley with a small division to lead an expedition to capture Chattanooga. This force arrived before Chattanooga on June 7. Negley ordered the 79th Pennsylvania Volunteers out to reconnoiter. It found the Confederates entrenched on the opposite side of the river along the banks and atop Cameron Hill. Negley brought up two artillery batteries to open fire on the Rebel troops and the town and sent infantry to the river bank to act as sharpshooters. The Union bombardment of Chattanooga continued throughout the 7th and until noon on the 8th. The Confederates replied, but it was uncoordinated since the undisciplined gunners were allowed to do as they wished. On June 10, Smith, who had arrived on the 8th, reported that Negley had withdrawn and the Confederate loss was minor. This attack on Chattanooga was a warning that Union troops could mount assaults when they wanted. Result(s): Union victory

What happened in the Battle of Chattanooga?

General Grant held on to the city of Chattanooga on the south side of the Tennessee River. The Confederates had his army surrounded on the higher mountains: ocuppying the Lookout Mountain to the west and Missionary Ridge to the east. Sherman's troops arrived with reinforcments. Then Grant made his move to re-position his armies. Maj. Gen. Joseph Hooker, with three divisions, marched from Bridgeport through Lookout Valley towards Brown's Ferry from the south. At 3:00 am, on October 27, portions of Hazen's brigade embarked upon pontoons and floated around Moccasin Bend to Brown's Ferry. They then proceeded along the western side of Lookout Mountain and fought a rare night battles at Wauhatchie Station. See: http://www.cr.nps.gov/hps/abpp/battles/tn021.htm Then they proceeded to advance along the western slopes of Lookout Mountain and pivoted around the northern face and eventually captured this prominant landmark---the battle being called the Battle above the Clouds---even though there was little actual fighting on top of it. Just the day before, General Longstreet pulled his men out of the defenses. This weaken the Confederate army around Chattanooga. On November 23-24, Union forces struck out and captured Orchard Knob and Lookout Mountain. On November 25, Union soldiers assaulted and carried the seemingly impregnable Confederate position on Missionary Ridge. One of the Confederacy's two major armies was routed.
