Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park invite the public to participate in a free walking tour on Sunday, Nov. 10, at 2:30 p.m. Led by Park Historian Jim Ogden, this two hour, mile and a half, moderate difficult walk will explore the Civil War Union artillery earthwork complex on the southern end of Stringer's Ridge on Moccasin Bend.
The walk will begin near the Moccasin Bend Mental Health Institute entrance on Moccasin Bend Road. Special event signs will direct to the parking area.
Cannons in these positions helped keep the Confederates at bay during the siege of Chattanooga in the fall 150 years ago and then helped them drive them from Lookout Mountain during the Battle Above the Clouds on a rainy Nov. 24, 1863.
Comfortable, supportive footwear and clothing appropriate for the weather and water are recommended for this program.
