GETTING READY FOR 2016:

A Call to Action
Action Item:
Go Digital
Year Accomplished:
2015

In the summer of 2015, Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park created an Instagram page. Instagram is a photo sharing social media platform that is very popular, especially with younger audiences. Currently, there are more than 300 million Instagram users world-wide, and the park hopes to reach youth audiences both locally and around the world. 

Within the first two months, the park amassed more than 100 followers. Photos highlight the spectacular scenery found throughout the battlefields, special programs, and even help to recruit volunteers. Because the park is located near a large urban center, Chattanooga, Tennessee, Instagram can be a powerful tool to engage with the local audience with the park in their backyard.
