September 19-20, 1863

—Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park —

Here you begin a seven mile tour thru the field where one of the bloodiest battles of the Civil War was fought. This park was established in 1890 and laid out by a commission of Union and Confederate Veterans, men who met in mortal combat on this field twenty seven years earlier. Your drive will take you past monuments, markers and metal tablets, United States and individual states. The monuments and the cannon mark the location where the units and batteries were engaged in battle. The metal tablets, Blue for the Union and Gray for Confederate are positioned so that the reader views the scene of action as did the troops inscribed on the tablets.
