Where

Medal of Honor recipient Henry Boynton was the major driving force behind the creation of Chickamauga as the first National Battlefield in 1895.  This exhibit focuses on how memories of the Civil War were created in the late 19th century.  Events like the “Blue and Gray BBQ” in 1889 fostered a new atmosphere of camaraderie that distinguish the time period.   Please come and join in this ongoing conversation about preservation and the creation of memory.
