Chickamauga
and
Chattanooga
National
Military
Park
On
September
19,
1895,
Adlai
E.
Stevenson,
Vice
President
of
the
United
States,
spoke
to
a
group
of
people
gathered
to
dedicate
the
Chick-
amauga
and
Chattanooga
National
Military
Park.
Mr.
Stevenson
said,
".
..
Today,by
Act
ofthe
Congress
ofthe
United
States,
the
Chickamauga-
Chattanooga
National
Military
Park
is
forever
set
apart
from
all
common
uses;
solemnly
dedicated
for
all
the
ages
to
all
the
American
people
.
.
."
The
park
dedicated
at
that
time
has
since
grown
to
be
the
largest
of
our
national
military
park
areas.
It
contains
partsof
the
battlefields
of
Chickamauga
and
Chattanooga,
Civil
War
en-
gagements
severely
contested
in
the
latter
part
of
1863.
From
its
inception
in
1890,
when
Congress
establishedthe
area
as
a
national
military
park,
the
park
hasrepresented
a
cooperative
effort
of
Confederate
and
Union
supporters.
This
closeh"
paralleledthe
growth
of
Chattanooga
following
the
Civil
War,
when
large
numbers
of
northerners
and
southerners
moved
to
the
growing
industrial
city.
Today,
the
statueofreconciliation
surmount-
ing
the
New
York
monument
on
Lookout
Moun-
tain,
depicts
a
Union
soldier
claspingthe
hand
of
a
Confederate
and
seems
to
symbolize
a
reality
carried
out
both
in
the
park
and
community
growth.
Just
as
the
park
development
represented
both
Confederate
and
Union
achievement,
so
did
the
battles
which
it
commemorates
represent
dual
measures
ofsuccess
for
the
participants.
The
Con-
federatevictory
at
Chickamauga,
perhaps
its
greatestsuccess
in
the
West,
gave
new
hope
to
the
South.
But
