Multi-State National Military Parks


Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park (Georgia, Tennessee)

5/5/1996 Back down the mountain and over to Chickamauga National Battlefield. Hundreds of plaques, monuments, cannons, etc. mark the progress of the battle, indicating which divisions were where, etc. Lots to read if you wanted to.

Shiloh National Military Park (Mississippi, Tennessee)

5/22/2003 ... then on to Shiloh NMP (in Tennessee Civil War National Heritage Area). Big park with lots of cannons, monuments. Good film at the visitor center, then an excellent talk and demo on infantrymen and musket firing by ranger in Confederate uniform. Drove a little of the park road to the Tennessee River.

10/15/2017 Slightly out of town we stopped at the Battery F site in the NHL and as well in Shiloh NMP. This was just a big field with a split rail fenced area where the Battery was and a couple of interpretive signs planted seemingly randomly out on the grass. By now it had been raining on and off and was noticeably cooler, so we didn't spend much time here (not that there was much to do anyway). For our final stop we continued west then north up into TN for the Davis Bridge Battlefield site in the NHL, Shiloh NMP and the Tennessee Civil War NHA. It rained pretty hard while driving but luckily stopped as we meandered through little country roads finally ending at a pullout which sure enough had an NPS sign. Ken had planted a waypoint right at the Hatchie River in Pocahontas and after a little walk we passed a stone memorial area and then found the interpretive signage at the river. Since the trees were dripping water and the mosquitoes were out in force we found our way back to the highway ...
