Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park
Just south of Chattanooga is the site of the area's longest and bloodiest battle of the United States Civil War. The U.S. War Department (now the Department of the Interior) declared this battlefield a National Military Park. It has attracted millions of visitors over the years. A visitor's center provides detailed information about the history of the battlefield and the battles fought here. The self-guided tour takes you through a number of battle sites, Wilder Tower lookout and a common area for picnics and recreation. Admission is free.
I'm a history buff, so I decided to check out Chickamauga Battlefield as part of a road trip through some Southern states. Having visited many battlefields before and finding them to be a bit underfunded, I was pleasantly suprised.
The visitor center at Chickamauga was very fresh looking and well maintained. The battlefield itself is well kept up and interesting to tour.
The Chattanooga unit of the park is a bit more of a pain to visit. The roads leading to the Lookout Mt. Visitor Center are wretched, but the view is nice as is the center itself.
Worth a visit, even for the casual fan of American History(the Chickimauga Unit, anyhow).
