Junior Civil War Historian
NPS/Stones River National Battlefield
One hundred fifty years ago, our nation nearly tore itself apart. Soldiers in blue and gray struggled on battlefields across the country and changed the face of the United States of America. You can start your journey towards understanding how important the Civil War was to us by becoming a Junior Ranger at Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park (NMP). You will have the chance to continue exploring this important part of our history by also becoming a Junior Civil War Historian. When you are done, you will understand how the Civil War shaped our nation’s history and become part of a select group of young visitors who truly appreciate how important the Civil War is to us today.
Once you have become a Junior Ranger at three parks, turn in your activity card or Junior Ranger program booklets at a participating park to receive your patch.
The following parks are also participating in the Junior Civil War Historian Program
