This chapter examines the battle between Confederate and Union armies in East Tennessee and southwestern Virginia during the period from October 1863 to March 1864. During this period, East Tennessee became a bloody battleground between the Union and Confederate armies, and while the war had left the mountains of eastern Kentucky, the Union army's movement into East Tennessee brought more pressure to bear on southwestern Virginia.
