Friday is the deadline to register for the Chattanooga Regional History Museum's "Marching With Rosecrans: Chickamauga Campaign Bus Tour."
The tour will be held Saturday, May 5, led by museum curator Dr. Daryl Black. It will combine bus transportation through the battlefield with some walking segments of the battle lines.
The bus will depart from the Chestnut Street museum at 9:30 a.m. The fee is $25 per person.
The tour is designed to help participants define the fighting on Sept. 20, 1863. It will highlight Confederate attempts to turn the Union army's northern flank, the attacks along the barricades defended by George H. Longstreet's rebel troops, the collapse of the Union right flank, and the final stand by the Union army on the slopes of Snodgrass Hill.
The Battle of Chickamauga has proven to be one of the more difficult events for historians to reconstruct. Fought primarily in the woods along the banks of Chickamauga Creek, the battle proved difficult because short lines of vision, compounded by the smoke and confusion of battle, limited comprehension of events beyond a few yards.
