The sprawling Chickamauga Battlefield/Military Park is a rich gem of history. Whether you're a Civil War buff or just passing through the area and want to have a taste of local history, don't miss it! My husband and I recently took a private tour with Rick Manion of White Star Battlefiedl Tours (423-240-2439). I wanted a more personal perspective because... More

Highly recommend this excursion to one of the bloodiest battle fields in the civil war. Very moving, and excellent directions to 8 sites as you drive by the monuments to all those who died on both sides of the war.

One of the major battles of the Civil War took place at Chickamauga and nearby Lookout Mountain. We took the auto tour route around the battlefield and stopped in the park museum. It is a sobering experience to be able to stand on the same soil where so many American's lost their lives, whether they were Confederate or Union, they... More

My husband and I visited the battlefield after running the marathon through the park(which was great). We hired Richard Manion with white Star battlefield tours to guide us as the battle was kind of confusing to me and he was great. Gave a good overview of what led up to battle and the battle itself. Had a lot of interesting... More

Okay, that's a fairly lame title to start a review. But, that said, our day at Chickamauga was stellar. The day actually started before the sun came up as I and about 1500 of my closest friends ran the Battlefield marathon & half-marathon within the park. Staff were very accommodating of this onslaught of non-traditional visitors. After the race, my... More

I got there late in the day to see the Chickamauga battlefield. One feature I haven't encountered previously is a dial up feature there you use your cell phone to get a story at various points within the park. It is a bit like having a tour guide with you as you tour the park. The next day I drove... More

I have driven many times through this area, so finally I got a chance to stop. This is a great park. We first went to the visitors center. Here we enjoyed a short film that put the battles in perspective. We then talked to the help desk and found that there is a cell phone tour. On this tour, you... More

If you are any kind of history buff or someone who wants peaceful surroundings this is the place to go. You get a real sense of what it was like during the battle. Must visit the visitors center. One piece of advise, the Wilder Tower is a great view point of the battlefield, however it is 137 steps up so... More

What a great place to visit. We stopped because they have a Junior Ranger badge program and to get my National Park Passbook stamped...it was much more than I expected. There is a great historical "museum" about the Civil War with a gun exhibit, which my son loved. There is a driving tour of points of interest in the park.... More

I was totally amazed by the museum and the awesome antique gun Collection. It is massive, a must see if you are a antique gun or Civil War, military enthusiast.
