Thomas Wilmer

Christopher Young, National Park Service Resource Education Specialist at Chickamauga National Military Park at Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia talks about the Civil War battle in the fall of 1863 at Chickamauga on the outskirts of Chattanooga, Tennessee.

Christopher also talks about the artillery reenactments—including live-fire 3” cannon with a full compliment of troops.

Civil War buffs with a passion for living history reenactments come from around the country to participate in mock battles that will make you think you’ve been transported back in time 150 years.
