Fodor's Review

This excellent small museum offers a timeline of the battle, a film on the military strategy that involved 124,000 soldiers, a collection of 346 antique military rifles, and a well-stocked bookstore. There's a 7-mi self-guided auto tour through the park, with numerous spots to stop and view the more than 700 monuments and historical markers in Chickamauga, and on select dates, you can join a free 90-minute auto caravan through the park, led by a park ranger. The first Civil War military park and the largest in the nation, it opened in 1890.
