The Aftermath of the Battle of Chickamauga-- Part 4

The Receiving andDistribution hospital remained in Dalton until the end of April 1864, then moved to Griffin. //// Living in Dalton from September-November 1863, was chaotic. Farmers and businessmen filed claims with the Confederate government for damage done by Longstreet's Army as it moved through there. Rail fences were taken by the thousands for campfires. Standing corn was taken. //// Most of the claims were paid in full. //// --Old Secesh
