You can park on the street and walk up on the "knob", this famous battleground sits in the middle of a historic neighborhood in Chattanooga, many momuments are erected here with lots of information about the groups that fought here in the Battles for Chattanooga. Well kept, most of the plaques were just restored a year or so ago, a... More

Lots of monuments, but better than that is the history behind this parcel of land. Directions on tripadvisor are inaccurate, like another reviewer posted. The historical markers offer great info regarding the war and to be able to stand there and have the same view as Ulysses Grant, was a privilege.

Really tall cool monuments. Area is fenced in with concrete a little hike up hill but worth it. Unexpected little bonus to our trip. Definitely worth drive.

Trip Advisor doesn't give correct directions. It is located at intersection of East 4th Street and North Orchard Nob Avenue. Grass was not mowed in places.

I had been to Chattanooga many times before I ever heard of this park. It is off the beaten path and not in the best neighborhood, but there is no damage or graffitti . The monuments are all in good condition. If you are interested in history you will love it. If not there are other parks better suited.

Visited this battlefield for the first time today. You have to park on the outside and walk up through the gates to the monuments. When we were there today, the grass on the hillside needed mowed, but the areas around the monuments was well kept. The view is awesome and you can see why this was a vantage point for... More

If this is such an important part and location of battle, there should be better signage. It also was not kept up as well as it should have been. It is located in a different area from rest of battle sites, and it should be given a cleanup makeover without disturbing the integrity of the site. It was my first... More

For Civil War buffs, this is where Grant, Thomas and Granger watched the attacks of Hooker against Lookout Mountain - the "Battle Above the Clouds" - and Sherman's stalled attack against Cleburne's division around the north end of Missionary Ridge, which is east of Civil War Chattanooga. Also from here they saw the soldiers of Thomas assault the rifle pits... More
