This historical hike will follow trails on the battlefield where we will view pyramidal (3-sided) monuments, state monuments, historical markers and historical cabins.  We will start at the Visitor Center and view a 25-minute orientation film at 10:00 before we begin the hike.   This is a fairly level trail, but rated moderate for the distance.   After the hike some hikers may wish to spend more time viewing the battlefield in their vehicle, as well as at the Visitor Center where there are many exhibits on the  Civil War era as well as exhibits specifically on the 1863 Campaign for Chattanooga.  There is also the Fuller Gun Collection, which is one of the best displays of military small arms in the U.S.  We can arrange carpools accordingly for those who wish to spend more time after the hike.
