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

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
