 AllRefer.com - Chattanooga campaign (U.S. History) - Encyclopedia
Chattanooga, Tenn., which commanded Confederate communications between the East and the Mississippi River and was also the key to loyal E Tennessee, had been an important Union objective as early as 1862 (see Buell, Don Carlos).
In 1863, the Union general William Rosecrans, commanding the Army of the Cumberland, forced Braxton Bragg to withdraw his Confederate army from middle Tennessee (June-Aug.) and maneuvered him out of Chattanooga (Aug. 16–Sept. 8).
The victory left Chattanooga in Union hands for the rest of the war.

 Chattanooga Bar Association - Mission and History
The organization of the Chattanooga Bar Association on April 15, 1897, was precipitated by a disastrous fire on April 3, 1897, which totally destroyed the Richardson Building where Miller Brothers Company department store building now stands (the Blue Cross/Blue Shield Annex).
This building was six stories in height and was then said to be "one of the largest buildings in the south." Its architect claimed it to be fireproof, yet by cruel irony was cremated in the consuming flames.
