Battles for Chattanooga

For a mere $3 you can walk through a gorgeous little park that has the actual cannons in the actual locations where the battles occurred. You can see where they were firing at! You can also see 5 states! There are authentic cannonballs that were not fired. In the center is a monument in remembrance of both sides of the Civil War -- which from what I understand makes it unique.

This is well worth the short walk from the Incline Railway.

Confederama - Battles for Chattanooga Electric Map

The Battles for Chattanooga Electric Map and Museum (formerly the Confederama) is still doing fine in its new location between the top of the Incline and Point Park.

The Tennessee Civil War Museum, which used to occupy the old Confederama building has moved about a block away to a building closer to the bottom of the Incline. The old Confederama building is now a Blockbuster Video store.

Battles for Chattanooga - Confederama

The Battles for Chattanooga Electric Map and Museum (better known to Roadside America buffs as the Confederama) has moved to a higher traffic location. They are now at the top of Lookout Mountain within walking distance [of Rock City] on Point Park.

From what I can tell from the maps in the Chattanooga Visitors Guide, The old Confederama location is now The Tennessee Civil War Museum. (Tennessee Ave, Chattanooga, TN 37550 423-821-4954) The entry says "New Attraction Open Summer 98" and the map shows it down at the bottom of the mountain close to the Incline.
