Re: 36th (Broyles) Georgia infantry Co. G.
Ashley, there is a stunning account of the 36th at Missionary Ridge on November 25, 1863 where they fought temporarily under Patrick Cleburne in what I consider a great book by Wiley Sword, "Mountains Touched With Fire". Vastly outnumbered and suffering repeated charges by Sherman's troops at the north end of the Ridge, the Confederates, almost out of ammunition, made a bayonet charge down the ridge and routed the Yankees, rounding up many prisoners. That part of the Ridge was never taken in battle. Cleburne's men vacated the Ridge under orders.
I had five uncles, all brothers, (Stokers) who volunteered for the 36th; one died early in 1862 and the others ended up at Vicksburg. I do not know if they were at Missionary Ridge that day.
