One can just imagine General Grant,Thomas and Sherman standing on top of Orchard Knob at daybreak, the sun going over Missionary Ridge. As the sun rises it is hitting the monuments on top of the Knob and is quite a treat not to mention the view during this spectacular time of day. Orchard Knob now is surrounded by the city... 更多
Lots of historical markers and explanation and a great view of the surrounding skyline; its a great quick stop to take in some history while in Chattanooga. The neighborhood is a bit depressed so lock your car when you hike up the hill.

You MUST check out Orchard Knob! The monuments are quite impressive and the views from the top are amazing! You can see downtown, Lookout/Signal Mtn, and Missonary Ridge!

If you study this war, this is a special place with a special story. Orchard Knob is in the middle of a somewhat scruffy residential neighborhood. The... 更多
The role of the site in the history of the Civil war is notable, and is well described at the site Parking is a bit limited, and the site is quite small when compared to the vast areas of the battle that happened on Chickamauga Gap Missionary ridge, and Lookout Mountain, but would be a good "quick stop" for car... 更多
