are not familiar with the area. From downtown Chattanooga, I drove east to Missionary Ridge on Main Street, and using Main Street took me to the top of Missionary Ridge. Once at the top of Missionary Ridge I needed to make two right turns to get on South Crest Street and then go only a slight distance south to reach the Bragg Reservation which is where this historical marker is located. Once you have entered the Bragg Reservation you will find this historical marker on the east side of the parking area on the old Ridge Road that runs through the Bragg Reservation. Marker is in this post office area: Chattanooga TN 37404, United States of America.
