Battle of Ringgold Gap - Atlanta Campaign Pavilion
Following the Union victory at Missionary Ridge and the Rebel retreat, Yankee troops set out in pursuit. Maj. Gen. Patrick Cleburne's command fell back to Ringgold Gap, where the Western & Atlantic Railroad passed through Taylor's Ridge. Maj. Gen. Joseph B. Hooker sent his force forward to seize the ridge, which it failed to do after five hours of heavy fighting.
The park features a relief map of the Battle of Ringgold Gap and a bronze statue of Gen. Maj. Cleburne in honor of his heroic feat.
