We were staying in Fort Oglethorpe so we thought we would check this out. We packed our lunch and arrived around lunch time. The main entrance was under construction, but the accessible. The visitors center was very informative. The rangers there gave us a nice trail map with 50 miles of trails to choose from. There is also an audio... More

We planned this trip to see this battlefield, and it was much larger than we initially thought. We started at the Chickamauga battlefield with the audio tour and ended up on the mountain overlook. The audio tour was great as it was a little rainy out, next time we will definitely see if there is a guided tour. Wonderful history... More

Heading home from Florida to Wisconsin, we decided to stop at the Battlefield. To say it is impressive is an understatement! We will go back to see more as our time was limited. I'm not a big history person but this moved me!

Visited for only a few hours because my wife doesn't "do" history. Needed much more time. The visitor center has a great film to get the overview, (and some good displays, described better by other reviewers). But I wanted to get out to the driving tour of the actual battlefield ! And I was suitably impressed. The audio tour was... More

My husband and I arrived only to be told that the visitors' center was going to close in two hours due to the weather. We had time to watch the well-done video and explore some of the museum. We were able to purchase some items from the bookstore. The clerk, a retired park ranger, was a wealth of information. The... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our day at the Military Park. The museum is extremely well done - the video was excellent. My husband particularly enjoyed the rifle collection - at least a thousand rifles going back 300 years! We did the driving tour and got out of the car to see specific monuments. Worked well for us on a cold November... More

If you want to soak up some Civil War history, this is the place for you. If you have an hour or two, there is the wonderful 24 minute movie at the visitor center and a driving tour. However, if you have the time, the battlefield is marked with all kinds of monuments, markers and placards detailing everything that happened... More

This is probably the best Battlefield Park I have visited behind Gettysburg. Even though this park is a little bit out of the way from Chattanooga, it is well worth the stop. i wish we had a lot more time to spend here but due to travel time and lack of Daylight in mid-January. There are so many monuments to... More
