  • Awesome park and history. The trails are great as is the park itself. We did the self tour using the cellphone call-in stops, very cool and informative. Definitely recommend stopping. We planned to spend 2 hours just checking out the historical stops and spent about 5 because there was far more to see than we thought! The trails were awesome, ran out of time to see most of them but really enjoyed what we got to explore.
  • My wife and i love a good historical site, especially one that deals with the civil war. LOTS to see and beautiful views and tons of plaques explaining what happened and where. A must see for anyone interested in history and offering gorgeous views. Only $5 per person to enter. Well worth it, and your admission lasts all day, so you can come back later if you dont have time to see everything.
  • I had never visited there before. It has a great variety of statues and buildings of the civil war. The site is beautiful and I particularly like that the tour is through your phone. You can just drive to the series of points of interest. Or you can get out and explore. And resume the phone tour at anytime.
  • The secret to enjoying Chickamauga is to take plenty of time both at the visitor's center and on the driving tour to learn about the battle. It is very interesting to learn the troop movement and timeline. It is amazing to stand on the very soil where our soldiers fought and died. My 7 year old enjoyed the Junior Ranger badge program and the gun exhibit.
  • Our Nations First National Military Park! Rarely do you find such a strong link to something that seems so distant in our past. The Civil War of the United States of America was terrible and it was a great example of what happens when political leaders and those with immense wealth go to extremes to divide a nation over their own petty desires. Just 26 years after the battle that took place at this historic park, the soldiers and leaders of both sides came together for a celebration to bond in brotherhood and share the history so fresh in their hearts and minds. If you have any doubt what the Civil War was fought over, why it started and how it was won, visit this park. There is a vast amount of books and history to be had here that are so close to the actual days of the war, you would be doing yourself a disservice to ever claim any knowledge of the Civil War without visiting this park and learning what is available there to the best of your ability.
