Contact Info
Fort Oglethorpe, GA 30742



In 1863, Union and Confederate forces fought for control of Chattanooga, the gateway to the deep south. The Confederates were victorious at nearby Chickamauga in September, but renewed fighting in Chattanooga in November gave Union troops final control. Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park, the nation's first, was created in 1890 to preserve and commemorate these battlefields.
