Colonel David Coleman of Buncombe County, leader of the 39th NC Regiment of Volunteers during the Civil War, is one of the least known of the state's heroes. Although he fought in a number of battles, it was the Battle of Chickamauga that gave him his shining moment. With his brigade commander wounded and second-in-command killed, Coleman took command, leading thousands of troops against a strong Yankee artillery position. His courageous action contributed to the Confederate victory.
