The park at Fort Oglethorpe, GA, is the site off the Battle of Chickamauga. The unit at Point Park, Chattanooga, TN, is on part of the site for the Battle of Chattanooga.

However, renewed fighting in Chattanooga that November provided Union troops victory and control of the city. After the fighting, a Confederate soldier ominously wrote, "This...is the death-knell of the Confederacy.
