This year marks the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Chattanooga, which was fought Nov. 23-25, 1863. Our 90-minute bus tour begins with a brief history of Chattanooga’s founding and its important role and strategic location during the Civil War. Key events of the war up to 1863 are provided, as well as the strategic goals of both armies and their leaders. The route takes participants by several state historical markers and monuments. Participants will also see historic Orchard Knob, the Bragg Reservation on Missionary Ridge and Chattanooga’s National Cemetery where more than 12,000 Union soldiers are buried.
