LMU HISTORY CLUB VISITS CHICKAMAUGA AND CHATTANOOGA NATIONAL MILITARY PARK
March 21, 2012 - Harrogate, Tennessee — While most Lincoln Memorial University (LMU) students are enjoying spring break this week, nearly a dozen members of LMU’s History Club got a head start with a trip to the Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park earlier this month.
The entire faculty of LMU’s History Department joined the club on the trip, including Lincoln Historian and Professor of History Charles Hubbard, Associate History Professor Earl Hess, Associate Professor of History Michael Toomey and Assistant Professor of History Debra Salata. The group’s visit got underway with a tour of the Fort Oglethorpe visitors center and a lecture from National Park Service Historian James Ogden.
The group also visited the Chickamauga and Chattanooga battlefields with stops at Snodgrass Hill, Lookout Mountain and Missionary Ridge. At Lookout Mountain the group enjoyed a spectacular view of Chattanooga, and Odgen provided details of the “battle above the clouds.” At Missionary Ridge, the lesson covered Bragg’s reservation where the union broke through the line and ultimately led to the Union victory.
