    In answer to Suzanne's question above, Col. John Wilder was an obscure Union general when at the height of the Battle of Chickamauga he saved the Union Army from total destruction. The Union line had broken and was in full retreat when Gen. George H. Thomas made a stand here, at Snodgrass Hill. Col. Wilder's infantry brigade, holding the right flank of Thomas' line, was armed with Spencer repeating rifles, which were extremely rare and extremeley effective. (At the time, most of the infantry on both sides used single-shot, muzzle loading muskets.) Wilder opened up on the surging Confederates and crushed their left flank with a devastating fire. Today, Thomas gets the credit, but it was really thanks to Wilder, his men, and the Spencer repeating rifle that the Union Army avoided total destruction.
