Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park invites the public to participate in a military timeline of Chickamauga battlefield on Saturday, Sept. 1 and Sunday, Sept. 2.
Living historians will represent historical military units associated with the battlefield. After a brief introduction, visitors are encouraged to take a self-guided walk through history behind the Chickamauga Battlefield Visitors Center. These “walks through history” begin at 10 a.m., 11 a.m., 1 p.m., 2 p.m., and 3 p.m. and conclude with a weapons firing demonstration.
Hundreds of Cherokee Indians travelled up the LaFayette Road during the Indian removal at the site, and U.S. volunteers trained for the Spanish-American War, World War I and World War II on Chickamauga battlefield. On Labor Day weekend, re-enactors and living historians will portray soldiers and historical figures from these various time periods.
