Please join us on Saturday, March 17th, 2018, as we tour Missionary Ridge and learn about this important Union victory that forced Bragg’s Confederate army from Chattanooga. We are pleased to have returning as our guide, Jim Ogden, Chief Historian at the Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park.
The Battle of Missionary Ridge, fought on November 25, 1863, was a key battle in the Chattanooga Campaign, which followed up on the Union victory at Lookout Mountain the day prior. This battle ended the siege of Chattanooga that began shortly after the Confederate victory at Chickamauga the prior September.
