         Information on the Battle of Ringgold Gap

Ringgold Gap was considered the last of the Battles in upper
Northwest Georgia as the Confederate forces retreated towards
Dalton afterward.  Approximately 4200 CSA soldiers under the
command of Gen. Patrick Cleburne and 16,000 Union forces under
the command of Gen. Joe Hooker clashed at Ringgold Gap.  The
battle took place on November 27, 1863.  Casualties (killed /
wounded) were 221 Confederate and 509 Union.

It was considered a Confederate victory as it allowed the CSA
forces to safely retreat South towards Rocky Face & Dalton,
delaying the "Atlanta Campain" until 1864.

Ringgold Gap is marked by a roadside park, built by the Works
Progress Administration (WPA) with a statue of Gen. Patrick Cleburne
overlooking the area of the battle on US Highway 41 just South of
Ringgold.
