The oldest and largest of America's Civil War parks, Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park (NMP), commemorates the 1863 battles for Chattanooga that marked a major turning point in the war. The NMP spans the borders of Georgia and Tennessee, with major units at Chickamauga, Lookout Mountain, Missionary Ridge, Orchard Knob and Signal Point. The park is headquartered at Chickamauga Battlefield, where the fields and woods of northwest Georgia witnessed the last major Confederate victory of the Civil War. Moccasin Bend National Archeological District, the newest addition to the NMP in 2003, not only commemorates the Civil War but preserves over 12,000 years of human history and heritage.

The Chickamauga Battlefield Visitor Center includes extensive exhibits, the Fuller Gun Collection, an orientation film and fiber optic map, maps of hiking and biking routes, and information on how to experience the Civil War history offered at the park units.

Chickamauga Battlefield hours of operation: Open daily 6 a.m. - sunset (EST). Admission to the Chickamauga visitor center and battlefield is free. Visitor center hours of operation 8:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. (EST).
