Chickamauga Celebrates 145 Years!
I saw this on the news tonight and thought it was worth mentioning. It's the 145th anniversary of the Battle of Chickamauga, the Confederacy's last major Civil War victory. They are celebrating September 19-21. The park is just south of Chattanooga in Walker County, Georgia. You can see a schedules, a brief battle history, maps, directions, lodging information, and much more at http://www.battleofchickamauga.net/. Did I mention that Vice President Dick Cheney, a descendant of a Chickamauga soldier, is the special keynote speaker?
