Location. 35° 1.231′ N, 85° Touch for map. 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 to the intersection of South Crest Road and Sheridan Avenue which is where this historical marker is located. This intersection is just south of the South Crest Road bridge over Interstate 24, on the top of Missionary Ridge. Marker is in this post office area: Chattanooga TN 37404, United States of America.
