Fort Oglethorpe, GA: On January 6, 2018, at 2 pm, Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park will present a special 2-hour driving and hiking tour (approximately ½ mile total walking distance) exploring the Chickamauga Battlefield. This caravan style tour begins inside the Chickamauga Battlefield Visitor Center.
Visitors will get the opportunity to explore a part of the battlefield that is not often seen - the terrain that caused one Union general to exclaim the battle had devolved into “Bushwhacking on a grand scale.” This tour will focus on one of the most famous parts of the battle, Longstreet’;s farmstead.
A good understanding of the ground you are on often determines who will win and who will lose in a battle. It also plays an important role in being able to understand the events that occurred on a battlefield many years later.
Please wear comfortable shoes and dress appropriately for the conditions.
