In 1892, Congress authorized the purchase of 5,200 acres of land in northwest Georgia that makes up the Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park. This was the first major Civil War battlefield set aside as a memorial to the soldiers who fought there. The park was officially dedicated in 1895 by veterans from both north and south. The visitors center offers interpretive exhibits, a book store, and a multi-media program that gives detailed information about the battle. An artillery display on site illustrates the various types of light field artillery used during the Chickamauga and Chattanooga campaign. The battlefield contains hundreds of monuments, interpretative tablets, wayside exhibits, and hiking and biking trails.

Take a self-guided tour of the 5,200-acre battlefield and hear an audio tape tell of the three-day conflict that claimed 34,000 Union and Confederate casualties. 

All units of Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park, with the exception of Point Park, are open between 6 am Eastern Time and sunset. Visitor Center hours are 8:30 a.m. - 5 p.m. For more information, call 706-866-9241.
