Chickamauga And Chattanooga National Military Park Announce Summer Day Camps

Friday, May 24, 2019
Children in grades fourth through sixth are invited to participate in Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park’s 2019 summer day camp at Chickamauga Battlefield and/or at Lookout Mountain Battlefield. This year the park will conduct its Chickamauga Battlefield camp from Tuesday, July 9 to Friday, July 12 and will meet each day at the Chickamauga Battlefield Visitor Center. The Lookout Mountain Battlefield camp will be held from Tuesday, July 16 to Friday, July 19 and will meet each day at Cravens House.
The camps will begin at 9 a.m. and end at 1 p.m. daily. Lunch is not included, so campers should make arrangements for lunch after being released.  As a reminder, the majority of the camp is held outdoors, so please plan accordingly. 

Campers will have opportunities to participate in many of the same activities soldiers engaged in during the Civil War and learn about the struggles they endured. They will also take part in other activities focused on the park’s varied history. Campers will also learn the importance of battlefield preservation by participating in preservation efforts within the park.  Camp participation is limited, so campers are asked to register as soon as possible.

The registration deadline for camp is July 1. Contact Park Ranger Christopher Young at
706-866-9241 x117 for additional information. Camp registration forms may be picked up at Chickamauga Battlefield Visitor Center or at Lookout Mountain Battlefield Visitor Center. Printable registration form may be found at https://www.nps.gov/chch/learn/kidsyouth/summer-day-camp.htm.

Concern For Our Country - And Response (2)

I am very concerned about the direction of our country. Everyone has to be on a “side” – no one working together. With that attitude we will get nowhere. Let me say up front, I have always been (and so has my family, dating back generations) a Democrat – now, seeing their behavior, I can’t imagine that I was ever one of them. I was even a volunteer when Carter ran for office. Here ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: Our Native Code Of Ethics

Many moons ago I flipped over what is now being called a poem by the great Shawnee warrior and chief, Tecumseh. The fact the chief didn’t like the “Pale Face” is understandable – they (we) blatantly stole the Indians’ land in a reign of terror after the Revolutionary War – yet Tecumseh is arguably the finest Native American who ever lived before he died at age 45. It can be argued ... (click for more)
