Tickets are now available for "A Walk Through Time: 1860-1864," a Civil War sesquicentennial event to be held Sept. 14-15 at Chickamauga Battlefield.

Multiple programs will be offered at locations throughout the park during this 150th anniversary commemoration, but the primary program will center on a timeline walk that will propel visitors through various living-history stations. At these stations, participants will learn about occurrences in North Georgia between 1860 and 1864.

Although the program is free, tickets are required.

Participants may download tickets through the park website at nps.gov/chch/planyourvisit/civil-war-timeline-and-special-programs.htm. The site allows you to choose the time you wish to attend, register your name and print the ticket.

These 1-hour-and-50-minute bus tours begin at the Chickamauga Battlefield Visitor Center at 9 a.m. each day, with the final tour leaving at 3:30 p.m. You will need to have your ticket with you on the desired date and arrive no later than 15 minutes before the scheduled tour time. Tickets of late arrivals will be released to others.
