Additionally, on August 27, visitors are invited to Chickamauga Battlefield to watch a doubleheader vintage base ball game at 12 pm (noon) and 2:30 pm, where players follow rules harkening back to the 1860s. This event would not have been possible without the generous support of Friends of the Park and Eastern National.

These fee free days provide opportunities for individuals and families to take an affordable day or more to explore one of the 412 national park sites across the country.
