Collections Sneak Peek: Chickamauga Monuments

I’m digitizing over sixty photographs, mostly from 1985, of the Chickamauga & Chattanooga National Military Park’s monuments. 1985 may not seem that long ago, and the monuments and landscape of the Battlefield probably haven’t changed much, but I’ve been previously called on to provide old photos of monuments by Park Rangers. Sometimes a plaque or the finger of a statue goes missing, and they need reference material. In twenty-five or fifty years, these might be better appreciated.

The original photographs will be donated to the Bandy Heritage Center in Dalton, GA.
