September 18, 1863

Battle of Chickamauga, Order of Battle (Confederate)

Although he is able to deploy over 65,000 men for the battle (thanks to reinforcements from Joe Johnston in Mississippi and two divisions from Lee under Longstreet), Gen. Bragg does not have all of them present on the first day of battle.  But, altogether, he is able to field 5 Corps of infantry, made up of 10 infantry divisions (30 infantry brigades, and 8 artillery battlions)---and 2 Corps of cavalry, a total of 4 divisions (8 cavalry brigades).
