Chip Bragg was born in Sumter, S.C., raised in Augusta, Ga., and graduated from Georgia Southern College and the Medical College of Georgia. He served in the U.S. Air Force Medical Corps prior to moving to Thomasville where he has practiced anesthesiology for over 30 years. He and his wife Kim have three grown sons.
Chip’s lifelong passion for American history has resulted in the publication of more than fifty articles and four books—two about the Civil War and two about the Revolutionary War. His fifth book, Patriots in Exile: Charleston Rebels in St. Augustine during the American Revolution, will be released in June of this year.
He is the current chairman of the Education Committee of the Society of the Cincinnati, our nation's oldest patriotic organization, founded in 1783 by officers of the Continental Army who served together during the Revolutionary War.
