Fort Oglethorpe, GA:  Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park is pleased to announce the waiver of entrance fees to Point Park, atop Lookout Mountain, on Monday,
February 20. Experience the majestic views of Chattanooga’s surrounding landscape from our nation’s first national military park.
 
This fee free day provides a great opportunity for visitors to learn about the importance of Chattanooga as it related to one of our nation’s presidents – Ulysses S. Grant. In 1863, General Grant was transferred to the city in order to ensure it did not fall into Confederate hands. Why was Chattanooga so important during the Civil War?  We encourage you to find out by visiting Point Park and its visitor center atop Lookout Mountain.
