These signs were at our hotel:
|The entrance gate into Point Park is so amazing.|
|There's a reason they called it the "Battle Above the Clouds"|
Next, was Chickamauga, which is the largest area of the park:
|Wilder's Brigade Monument. There's a LOT of steps up that thing! It overlooks the area where Wilder's "Lightning Brigade" fought.|

Our last stop was the Tennessee Valley Railroad and Museum:
