In 1863, Union and Confederate forces fought for control of Chattanooga, known as the "Gateway to the Deep South." The Confederates were victorious at nearby Chickamauga in September. However, renewed fighting in Chattanooga that November provided Union troops victory and control of the city. The 5,300 acre Chickamauga Battlefield is the scene of the last major Confederate victory of the American Civil War.
