We spent about 2 hours visiting the Museum and driving around looking at some of the monuments. We parked and walked across the fields to look at some. Each state who had troops at this Battle has erected a monument in their honor. Approximately 34,000 of these troops lost their lives here. As you walk by the monuments in the... More

The battlegrounds are in great condition. The monuments are easy to see and find. You must see this amazing glimpse of the past. Some tips... 1. If you have small children this can be boring to them. Plan on stopping by the visitors center to see the museum and drive through the battlegrounds. Only stop and get out at the... More

This place is very cool, and very informative. I got to see some really cool things when I visited. The staff was really polite. The museum has some cool artifacts. The gift shop is also very cool. I definitely recommend this place. I also look forward to going back in the future.

If you are visiting the Chattanooga civil war historical sites, go to the Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park in Fort Oglethorpe (a town, not a fort) FIRST! They have a great 26 minute documentary movie that gives you a thorough overview of the reason for the campaign, the fundamental battles, and the impact on the war; the other two... More

Although I have lived in Ringgold almost my entire life, I never really knew what the Chickamauga and Chattanooga Military Park had to offer. Now that I am raising 4 boys, my husband and I have discovered it is really cheap entertainment! We love to drive around the battlefields, around dusk, and look for deer. In the spring, we take...

Very informative 27 min. video, knowledgeable volunteer at reception. very good museum with lots of info. on the battle, and a huge collection of older muskets and rifles. The grounds/battlefield have lots of monuments and stations with descriptions of what took place at that point. All the grounds very well kept. Well worth the time!

The battlefield consists of a visitor center and a seven mile driving loop with 8 posted stops along the way. The center has a 26 minute film about the battle which I recommend seeing before heading on the loop. The history of the battle is also well presented in a number of galleries in the visitor center. Also in the... More

During my stay in the USA, one of the places I visited was the Chickamauga & Chattanooga National Military Park in GA,TN. One of my highlights was seeing a re-enactment of a Civil War Gun Drill firing a blank charge. It was suffiently ear pierincing loud. I also managed to take a trip up to the Lookout Mountain Battlefield Park... More
