Chickamauga Battlefield in Pictures
Today I went to Chickamauga Battlefield. It was a beautiful day and the sun bathed the battlefield in a gentle light that lent itself well to photography. The second most bloody battle in the Civil War was fought at this battlefield just South of Chattanooga. Thirty-five thousand soldiers died on these grounds. I have written about the many ghosts of this second most haunted battlefield in the country before and I will go into more detail about the hauntings and the green eyed beast that lives on Snodgrass Hill in my new book, Haunted Chattanooga. But here area few pictures I took today. Chickamauga is a stunningly beautiful military park buried in enormous monuments that serve as tombstones for the hundreds of dead from each state that fell in this battle. I didn't expect in to be so lovely and I took far more pictures than I can put in the book.
