A valley cuts the balcony in the middle, but Bragg from both sides commands it as if the horseshoe were not split. At the right end of the balcony is Lookout Mountain, like a stage box. The box opposite is the north end of Missionary Ridge; and the whole left side of the balcony is part of the same ridge. Bragg holds them all. His centre is up on the left side of the balcony: his two wings are the two stage boxes that look at each other across the valley. He also holds a position in the middle of the parquet, called Orchard Knob. The parquet is Chattanooga valley. To attack Bragg, there is a choice. Go at the centre, cut him in two, and beat the stage boxes separately, or get round behind the boxes, and attack both, so that one cannot go
