One thing I like about living in a tent is the opportunity to travel and see different things. I had never been to a National Military Park before, so we went to the Chickamauga & Chattanooga National Military Park (the Lookout Mountain Battlefield,) in Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia.
FYI, there are 9 National Military Parks, 4 National Battlefield Parks, and 1 National Battlefield site in the U.S. ( I love looking up facts and learning new things, which is one of the reasons I like to blog.)
It’s on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places. Point Park is a 10 acre memorial park. It preserves the sight of 2 major battles of the American Civil War: the Battle of Chickmauga and the Chattanooga Campaign.
This park is the first and largest military park, authorized in 1890.
The battle here was fought November 24, 1863.
