Marker series. This marker is included in the Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park, Missionary Ridge, and the Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park: November 25, 1863 marker series.
Location. 35° 1.125′ N, 85° 15.827′ W. Marker is in Chattanooga, Tennessee, in Hamilton County. Marker is on South Crest Road south of East Main Street. In order to view this historical marker one must find a way to get to the crest of Missionary Ridge. The options to use in ascending Missionary Ridge are limited and difficult to locate if you 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. The historical marker is located on the south side of the entrance to the Bragg Reservation, just off of South Crest Road. Touch for map. Marker is in this post office area: Chattanooga TN 37404, United States of America. Touch for directions.
