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

We really enjoyed the museum center and the movie to get a feel for the battle then headed out to a self guided tour of the battlefield. Very interesting. Lots to see and learn. From there we went to the little town of Chickamauga. Not much there, we could have skipped it. A couple of restaurants in the area but... More

I have recently started visiting Civil War battlefields and have found no better way to enhance the experience than to hire a guide. Richard Manion of White Star Battlefield Tours is a history professor who took myself and a friend on a 4 hour tour of the Chickamauga Battlefield today, and it was a great experience. We had done some... More

Prior to our cruise in Decmber, we drove to Chickamauga Battlefield. We are from central Illinois, and there was a monument dedicated to the Newton Lighting Brigade from Illinois. Also, I knew we had a relative who fought and died at Lookout Mountain, so we visited the battlefield early in the morning, and proceeded to the park services building. They... More

U S Grant demonstrated why he was one of the Nation's most successful Generals by finding a way to a victory. The battle site was really the beginning of the end for the Confederacy. The park is well positioned - the graphics of very well done - and the story is readable by all. Regardless of your thoughts of North... More

The park service has really been working hard to clean up the ground. It is a beautiful park to explore on foot, on a bike or in the car.

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
