On our most recent trip to the great State of Tennessee, we stopped into the battlefield again. It had been years since I was last here. The visitor center has been redone and it looks great. The 26 minute film about the battle and subsequent battle on Missionary Ridge have also been updated. The driving tour is well marked and... More

Imagine being in a small geographical area where brothers, fathers and uncles - families against families - are fighting each other. 18,000 people vs. 18,000 people, the same amount that fills your typical NHL hockey arena battling hand to hand. The monuments to regiments from varying states, some in the middle of the woods, others standing alone in a field,... More

What a triumph for The South, the Victory at Chickamauga! What a sorry end at The Battle of Lookout Mountains when the North just over-ran the Southern Troops on better-positioned Lookout Mountain!

I was pleasantly surprised by the Chickamauga Battlefield. I thought because it is one of the lesser known battles of the Civil War compared to Gettysburg or Mannasas that it wouldn't be as informative. I was wrong. The welcome center had a very good film that told about the lives of some who were involved in this battle and there... More

Weather was good, short drive from Chattanooga. Depending on your level of interest you could spend a long day just wondering the battlefield and reading the historical markers. Nice drive through the battlefield. We were visiting during April and they were doing road work on the park, but it wasn't very crowded.

A little out of the way, but worth the visit if you like civil war stuff. We watched the movie which was very good. There is a small gift shop as well as a museum and artifacts. We spent about a hour there.

What an amazing, awesome, humbling place. The visitor center is well laid out and provides a good introduction as well as an extensive firearms collection. The battlefield itself is extensive, well maintained and marked. I recommend you give yourself plenty of time (half day or more)and buy the enhanced audio tour and field guide they sell in the shop. It... More

Great museum with a movie to watch as well. Enjoyed the drive through the battlefields using our cellphones at eight different stops on the drive to explain the battles.

One of the main reasons for my trip t the States was to visit here. Most people go to Gettysburg but for some reason Chickamauga always captured my imagination more. I made sure I had the full day at my disposal, although I ultimately didn't need it. On arrival there was a video, which tells you a little about the... More
