Because of it’s strategic location, waterways and rail systems, Chattanooga was considered the gateway to the deep south and a strategic location for both the Union and the Confederacy.

While visiting be sure to visit the park’s museum where you will see one of the most extensive arms collections from that period the Fuller Gun Collection.
