In the last few years I have found an interest in the American Civil War. After watching the many PBS series about it, I’ve taken up visiting battlefield sites. Chickamauga was the first national battlefield.
The visitor center was typically well-appointed, with a very good film presentation and bookstore. Additionally, it contains an outstanding collection of arms, Civil War arms, along with both pre- and post-Civil War arms.
The help desk was manned by an outstanding (and very knowledgeable) gentleman … he even knew information about the pre-battle skirmish involving Nathan Bedford Forrest (my personal favorite general). I would recommend this place to anyone who wants to get a real feel of the Civil War.
See the park, but don’t miss Snodgrass Hill … where General George Thomas earned the title “The Rock of Chickamauga”
