Verso: "The Chattanooga Valley - sketched from the Summit of Lookout Mountain - Showing Missionary ridge, Chattanooga - Moccasin point - Browns Ferry &c. &c. - // References A. Brown's Ferry & Pontoon bridge B. Cameron Hill C. Moccasin Point D. Chattanooga E. Missionary Ridge F. Sherman's pontoon bridge G. Nashville & Chattanooga R. Road // -This view comprises the principal portions of the field of the late battle. Hooker's position was on the extreme left of the picture from which he attacked Lookout Mountain, carrying the position by flank & sweeping completely around Lookout point rising gradually to the summit of the mountain. Sherman crossed at the pontoon bridge F & attacked Missionary Ridge. This consists of a series of knolls each one of which was now fortified & were successively carried at the point of the bayonet. The view independent of the association is grand -I note the resemblance to an Indian Moccasin from which Moccasin point takes its name. // [signed] Frd. B. Schell."
