This Reunion Photo was taken in 1902. Lucius Doolittle can be seen standing on the far left of the photo.


The site today-Snodgrass Hill-Chickamauga, Ga.

Using clues found in the original picture, we were able to identify the site of this Reunion Photo as being taken on Snodgrass Hill, just to the left of the cabin that served as General Thomas's Headquarters. Jim Ogden, chief historian at Chickamauga N.M.P., confirmed the location. (Photo by Robert Bundy)
