Chickamauga and Chattanooga Military Park Tour

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In north Georgia and south Tennessee, Union and Confederate armies clashed during the fall of 1863 in some of the hardest fighting of the Civil War. The prize was Chattanooga, a key rail center and the gateway to the heart of the Confederacy.

In September 1863 the Union Army of the Cumberland was routed at the Battle of Chickamauga and retreated into Chattanooga. Over the next two months Confederate forces besieged the trapped Union army. Finally, in late November 1863 the Union army won a series of battles around Chattanooga and drove the Confederates south into Georgia. Learn more about the peopleplaces, and stories that shape the history of Chickamauga and Chattanooga Military Park.

On Thursday afternoon, we are thrilled to offer an optional (no-cost) tour to visit the Chickamauga Battlefield and are pleased to announce that we will also have the services of a Battlefield guide. 

The tour will begin at 1:00 PM with a brief visit to the Chickamauga Battlefield Visitor Center to see a film and the exhibits and then get out on the battlefield.  

We’ll have a signup sheet at the conference registration desk during the week. If interested, sign-up by Tuesday afternoon.  When signing up, please indicate whether or not you have a car and if you are willing to drive other interested individuals to the site. This is an un-hosted and no-fee optional event and we’re not providing transportation. Carpooling is encouraged as much as possible. The tour of the battlefield itself requires transportation, as it is extensive.
