Attacking Sherman with 1/3 of the number of men Sherman had during the last weeks of the war indicates dedication or perhaps insanity.

This is very helpful review.

You may want to visit the nearby Victory Center, especially if you have kids. The staff gives great demonstrations with surgical instruments of the time, and canon and musket firings. The village shows the importation of crops like flax, and methods used on 18th century agriculture.

Bloody pond is also meaningful to children when a parent or guide gives a gruesome description of how it looked.

I agree with the review, but I hate acknowledge it since my great great grandfather was wounded at the battle of Raymond.

The remoteness of the site enhances one's appreciation for how disoriented one might become in these rolling hills and plains. Also gives you an appreciation of how close the battlefield sites are in the east.

Some development in the area detracts from the feeling of the battlefield, but you can get a good idea of the casualties at the stone wall.

This is a good review of the battlefield and park. Lookout Mountain is a good place to visit because of the views of the area, but it does not add a great deal of understanding to the action of the battles.

Visited the battlefield again to see more of the units. The line of forts around Fort Harrison are worth seeing. They are well preserved and have informative historical signs. Also saw a smaller fort called Parker's Battery and will write a review of Drewry's Bluff, which was impressive as well.

Of all the civil war battlefields I have visited, I would rank this second only to Gettysburg. Great place to visit.

I have visited many of the civil war battlefields, and this one is the best. The park gives you an incredible insight into the strategy and the tragedy of the battle.

Look for the deer at dusk. There were literally hundreds of deer that came out into the open at dusk.
