Dry bag

A dry bag is a type of flexible container which seals in a watertight manner. Dry bags are used in kayaking, rafting and other outdoor activities where sensitive items would otherwise get wet as well as extreme sports such as skiing and snowboarding. Dry bags are used to protect electronics from water; as well, they are used to prevent sleeping bags and spare clothing from getting wet, as in a camping context, wet sleeping bags or spare clothing could post a risk to a camper's safety, due to the poor insulative qualities of wet clothing or sleeping bags. They are a construction of plastic film, plastic-coated fabric or waterproofed fabric, formed to create an impermeable, water-ingress protected bag; when using a dry bag, it is vital to ensure the roll top closure is folded at least three times, to create a watertight seal. Construction techniques include welding and gluing. A large range of sizes are available, ranging from small bags large enough for a camera or smartphone to mid-size bags large enough for a sleeping bag, to large bags big enough for several sleeping bags and a folded tent

Battle of Cherokee Station

The Battle of Cherokee Station was a battle of the American Civil War fought between Union Army and Confederate Army near the town of Cherokee Station Alabama on 21 October 1863. General Sherman attempted to start rebuilding the Memphis and Charleston Railroad to give Union forces an easier time to arrive at Chattanooga from Mississippi. Sherman initiated his reconstruction at Corinth and began to push into northern Alabama. On 20 October, the Union captured Barton's Station and began their assault on Cherokee Station with a brief cavalry skirmish. XV Corps attacked Confederate forces near Cherokee Station and after an hour of trading musket fire, the Confederates retreated. First Division of XV Corps brought up several Parrott rifles and killed many of the retreating Confederates; the Union continued its push with a decisive victory at Little Bear Creek on October 27 near Tuscumbia, forcing the Confederates to surrender Tuscumbia. The continued Confederate resistance, persuaded the Union to instead seek more northerly, safer routes to Chattanooga.

General Sherman attempted to rebuild the Memphis and Charleston Railroad in order to make it easier for Union forces to get to Chattanooga and Missionary Ridge to prepare for an attack on Atlanta, Georgia. They began rebuilding near Corinth and pushed through Northwest Alabama. Sherman began his push near Cane Creek on 20 October. On the same day, skirmishes occurred at Dickson's Stations, both Union victories. On 20 October, Sherman pushed east towards Cherokee Station. On the evening of 20 October, a skirmish occurred between the 5th Ohio Cavalry and a large troop of Confederate cavalry; the 3rd U. S. Cavalry came up as support; the 5th lost a total of two horses. On 21 October at 08:00, the XV Corps moved up towards the location of the Confederate troops, with its 1st Division leading, they opened fire. Musket fire was exchanged with the Confederates sustaining heavy losses. After the loss of a significant amount of their men, the Confederates retreated; the division inflicted several dozen more casualties.

Several Confederate soldiers were captured as well. The Confederates retreated from the field back to fortifications near Tuscumbia. Union forces sustained 35 casualties. Lieutenant-General Stephen Dill Lee used artillery and his men to delay the Union's assault on Tuscumbia and made occasional skirmishes with Union troops, such as the skirmish at Barton's Station. However, on 27 October, Lee was forced to retreat from Tuscumbia after a defeat at Little Bear Creek; as Union troops went towards Georgia, Lee attempted a second assault on Cherokee Station, but was repulsed by XV Corps. After this defeat, the Confederates attempted to win at another skirmish at Barton's Station. Due to the lack of supplies, Lee was forced to withdraw from Alabama to northern Georgia. However, Lee's resistance prevented the reconstruction of the Memphis and Charleston Railroad by making the Union use northern detours to Chattanooga. Bragg commended Lee for his actions in delaying Union forces and preventing the construction of the Memphis and Charleston Railroad.
