In the fall of 1863, Union and Confederate forces locked in a struggle over the railroad town of Chattanooga, known as the "Gateway to the Deep South." Two armies totaling more than 130,000 soldiers clashed together in the woods and farmlands of north Georgia in September in the Battle of Chickamauga. The Confederates were victorious at Chickamauga, however renewed fighting in Chattanooga that November provided Union troops victory and control of the city. Preserved in 1890 as the nation's first national military park, commemorating the actions and bravery of both sides, Chickamauga & Chattanooga NMP now manages over 9,000 acres with stories stretching back 12,000 years and forward to the present day.
