Contact: Kim Coons, 423-752-5213 x139
Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park has started using social media with the hope of reaching "virtual visitors" who may not be able to visit the park or for those who live in the area and would like to learn more about the park, including special events and programs.
During the 150th Anniversary of the Campaign for Chattanooga in 2013, the National Park Service's social media team and Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park's social media team used various social media outlets to successfully reach over 300,000 virtual visitors! In order to reach a wide range of individuals, the park has focused its efforts on Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube. To "Like" or "Follow" us, please search the links below.
