The re-dedication of the restored Lytle Monument will formally commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Chickamauga. Union Brigadier General William Lytle was widely known as the "poet warrior" of the Civil War. His work was beloved by soldiers in both armies. Lytle fell mortally wounded while trying to maintain the Federal line. On the battlefield that night, Confederates reverently stood guard over his body until it could be returned to the Federal Army. Join the National Park Service, local dignitaries and the General Lytle Camp of the Sons of Union Veterans from Cincinnati for this public re-dedication. A reception will follow, honoring donors to the restoration and the Friends of the Park for its leadership in the project.
