This place is a "must see" for any Civil War history buff; anyone who appreciates military history and the sacrifice our country's fallen heros have made & continue to make; as well as, anyone wishing to teach future generations about history, honor, sacrifice, service, and love of country. This is why we brought our kids (11yr old twins & 6... More

The museum was a good place to learn about Civil War history and the battles around Chickamauga and Chattanooga. The free movie was very informative. The firearms collection was remarkable. The self-guided car tour with Bluetooth audio explanations of the battlefield was very informative and left you with a sense of awe at being on the very land that made... More

This park is in a beautiful area in north Georgia and is the setting for one of the bloodiest battles of the Civil War. The museum, exhibits, film, monuments, walking paths and tour are a perfect way to learn about this battle. Plan to spend at least half a day there.

then this is the place for you! I've been twice and am now planning my third trip there. It is beautifully maintained and the park workers are very helpful and knowledgeable. The visitor center has a stunning collection and all you need to orient yourself before heading into the park. My husband and I are active so we walked all... More

My husband and I love to walk around the Chickamauga National Military Park. We have spent many hours looking at the monuments and walking through the woods. It is cooler in the woods on a hot day and you can take a picnic lunch with you. We have taken the grand-kids with us and spent hours wandering around.

I would definitely recommend the battlefield tour cd. It explains the significance of various locations around the park. It certainly helped me visualize the actions and reactions that took place.

This park provides an interesting drive through Civil War history, as well as ample locations to see deer and Pokemon. Don't miss the Junior Ranger program for elementary age kids, and there's a tall tower monument where you can get a great view of the area from the top. Appears to be a popular spot for locals to exercise and... More

So much to see in one day! If you are a history buff, start early and plan on spending the day. Definitely start at the Chickamauga visitors center. I HIGHLY recommend taking the auto tour with the Park Ranger Lee White. This man has so much knowledge about the history here and a way of presenting it that it literally... More

C and C is one of the most reflective fields of combat on this continent; where once citizens fought for ideology, economics and independent government now are sleepy fields, wandering creeks and dense woods. Not only was it a field of contest, it was a field of reconciliation in the aftermath. The battlefield evolved into a military instillation during the... More
