I agree with another reviewer, it doesn't seem like soldiers who lost their lives on Missionary Ridge gets the honor they deserve. North Crest & South Crest Road are more famous for all the different views than they are for historic purposes. Maybe a dozen or more battle markers line both sides of this road and several historic military reservations. Plus you get some very great views of Chattanooga, Lookout Mountain, Signal Mountain and several major ridges.

I remembered Missionary Ridge which along with Lookout Mountain was one of the main sites of the Battle of Chattanooga in late 1863 from a visit with the family about 20 years ago as an area with minimal historic interpretation for such an important battle. One of the problems is that there is so much residential development along the Ridge. I found it even worse during my recent visit with very little attention being paid to it in spite of the 150th battle anniversary coming up. There is little or no parking along the route, the monuments could use some refurbishing, and there really needs to be some more details on the battle. Some entity ought to adopt this historical site which was really the beginning of Sherman's march to Atlanta and to the sea.
