Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park invites the public to attend special artillery demonstrations on Saturday, August 3, 2013 at Point Park, located on historic Lookout Mountain, to learn about the trials and tribulations that Confederate artillerists experienced in the fall of 1863. While these soldiers often experienced marvelous views of the Tennessee River Valley, firing artillery rounds from the mountain's summit proved not to be as spectacular. 

Artillery programs will be conducted at 10:30 a.m., 11:30 a.m., 1:30 p.m., and 2:30 p.m. Admission to Point Park is $3.00 per adult age 16 and over; 15 years and under, Senior, Access, and Annual Pass holders are free.
