  • We visited multiple battlefields this week (Chickamauga, Chattanooga, Fort Donelson) and this was not the most geographically impressive. It was another interesting piece of the civil war story...

  • A very nice day for a visit. The driving tour is great, but it is walkable and great for bicycles. Something for everyone of all ages. Sites are well marked and easy to find. There is a self guided audio tour which is very helpful. Also very sobering to think of the number of casualties. You can spend as little or as long as you like exploring the park. Download the National Park Service app before you go.
  • This battlefield has some amazing history, tours and events. I've visited multiple times and it's been well worth it every time. It's a great place even if you're just a local looking to get outside. I love walking the trails here.
