Battlefields Civil War - Braxton Bragg

Following the loss of Corinth, Mississippi, Bragg replaced Beauregard as commander of the Confederate Army of Mississippi, later renamed the Army of Tennessee. Under Bragg the army scored partial victories--at places like Perryville, Stones River, and Chickamauga--but never delivered the finishing blow.  This infuriated his subordinates, who were already frustrated with Bragg's poor temper and combative personality. Many advocated for Bragg's removal, but Davis' support for his old friend was unwavering.

Officer resigns as Army investigates her involvement in Washington rally that led to U.S. Capitol riot

A psychological operations officer who the Army is investigating for leading a group of people from North Carolina to the rally in Washington that led up to the deadly riot in the U.S. Capitol had already resigned her commission, CBS News correspondent David Martin reports.

Commanders at Fort Bragg said they were reviewing Captain Emily Rainey's involvement in last week's events in the nation's capital.

Army is investigating how many soldiers from Fort Bragg accompanied Rainey to Washington. Rainey had resigned her commission after receiving a career-ending letter of reprimand for her actions at an earlier protest in the Fort Bragg area, Martin reports.

Because the process takes time, Rainey was still on active duty when she led a group of protestors to Washington and is due to leave the Army next month. Officials at Fort Bragg are now working to determine what other soldiers went to Washington and whether they were part of the mob that stormed the Capitol, Martin reports.

Rainey said she led 100 members of Moore County Citizens for Freedom (MCCF), which describes itself online as a nonpartisan network promoting conservative values, from North Carolina to Washington to "stand against election fraud" and support Trump.
