Reopening of the Tenn River - Wauhatchie, Lookout Valley, Raccoon Ridge - 10/29/1863
A Virtual Cemetery created by: Janet
Description:
This battle was referred to in the OR as the Reopening of the Tennesse River. It was also referred to as Lookout Valley and Raccoon Ridge. The OR reports 9 Officers killed and 29 Officers wounded; 69 enlisted men killed and 293 wounded; 15 enlisted men missing.

"The following lines were composed by Comrade Ewing, who participated in the glorious charge upon Longstreet's forces at Lookout valley, Tennessee, Oct. 29th, 1863:

The Gallant Charge of the Thirty-Third.

"The night was dark, the hour was late,
I might say that morning came;
When I awoke from a sound sleep,
Hearing some one call my name.
The cannons boomed, the muskets roared,
The colonel's voice I heard,
The words he spoke I remember well,
'Twas 'Fall in, Thirty-Third.'

We packed our stuff, our knapsacks slung,
And quickly took our place;
The colonel's voice I heard again,
His order was, 'Right face;'
He took us out into the road,
And then We marched quick time,
But soon we came to Raccoon Hill
And formed our battle-line.

We advanced along the rugged hill,
Our colonel at our head,
But soon we came to a ravine
That further progress stayed.
On our left we heard a musket shot,
And there a volley came,
And then among our gallant boys
The bullets fell like rain.
Our adjutant stepped to the front,
And cried out, 'Who are you?'
But unto him no answer came,
And thick the bullets flew.

'Are you the Seventy-Third, up there?'
Our adjutant cried again;
No answer; but they fired at him,
And shot him through the brain.
We then fell back into the road,
And there our bayonets fixed;
'Forward, my boys,' our major cried,
'We'll cure them of their tricks.'
The men advanced on double-quick,
And charged them with a will,
And drove old Longstreet and his force,
And took old Raccoon Hill.

Long live the Ohio Seventy-Third,
Who helped us on that night,
Likewise the gallant Fifty-Fifth,
Who supported us through the fight.
The One Hundred and Thirty-Sixth New York,
They did their duty well;
Of the Thirty-Third I'll say no more,
Her deeds let history tell. "
