This home was built during the Civil War and is still standing. A nearby trail, a two-hour hike, allows you to tour battle sites of The Battle of Chattanooga.

This is the site of a Civil War battle, the home was rebuilt in 1866 and is on the cliff of the mountain. The National Park ranger was very informative and the property is interesting.
