As a Civil War buff, I wish I had more time to devote to this. I spent 2 days, but they were packed full. Watch the videos, take the auto tour, ask questions, it's worth it!

In three hours you could see a few of the main attractions, such as Wilder Tower and Snodgrass hill. The park is about 30 minutes from Chattanooga.
