In 1863, Union and Confederate forces fought for control of Chattanooga, known as the "Gateway to the Deep South." The Confederates were victorious at nearby Chickamauga in September. However, renewed fighting in Chattanooga that November provided Union troops victory and control of the city. After the fighting, a Confederate soldier ominously wrote, "This...is the death-knell of the Confederacy." Located on both sides of the Tennessee-Georgia state line, this national military park offers a variety of activities across 10,000 acres (4,047 ha) of preserved landscape. Start by visiting one of the two visitor centers and exploring the park’s story through the exhibits on display.
