Chattanooga Battlefield

Located at the foot of Lookout Mountain in northwest Georgia and southeast Tennessee, Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park preserves several battlefield spaces surrounded by residential and commercial development. The Park encompasses the sites of Chickamauga Battlefield, Lookout Mountain, Orchard Knob, and Missionary Ridge. Lookout Mountain includes much of the steep wooded slopes of the mountain where the famed "Battle Above the Clouds" took place. At the top of Lookout Mountain are a visitor center, walking trails and historic Point Park, overlooking the city of Chattanooga.  The battlefields of Missionary Ridge and Orchard Knob are nearby just east of the city. The 75-acre Chattanooga National Cemetery on South Holtzclaw Avenue where 12,800 Civil War soldiers are buried faces Missionary Ridge.
