What's Happening ....

The forty-sixth running of The Chickamauga Chase is Saturday, April 20, 2013. 


The Chickamauga Chase, which has been run annually in the Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park since 1969 is Chattanooga's oldest continuously run road race.  The Chase's 15K is one of America's oldest races at that distance. Along with the competitive 5K, the Scenic Walk and Kiddie K, The Chickamauga Chase is a must-do event for the whole family!


The courses take runners past many of the park's historic sites, monuments and markers within the Chickamauga & Chattanooga National Military Park, located just a few miles south of Chattanooga, TN near the towns of Ft. Oglethorpe and Chickamauga, GA.


The Chickamauga Chase is committed to helping support the mission of the Friends of the Park.   Find out more about the Chickamauga Chase at

Ohio Students Lead the Way in Restoring Ohio State Monument

The 5th grade classes of Waggoner Road Middle School in Reynoldsburg, Ohio are leading the effort to restore the monument and memorial to the sons of Ohio who bravely gave their lives in preserving the Union during the Civil War. The students need your help!


The Ohio Monument

The Ohio monument stands proudly on Missionary Ridge as part of the

Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park, where it’s been since 1903. The monument features four life size granite statues.  Three of the figures represent the infantry, artillery and cavalry. The fourth figure is a drummer boy.


Restore the Drummer Boy

After more than 110 years, the monument requires some repairs, specifically to our drummer boy. His hands and drumsticks are no longer attached, so we need your help to make him whole again. The Waggoner Road Middle School students are partnering with the National Park Service and the Friends of the Park to raise $5,000 for restoration of the monument.


How You Can Help

You can help restore our beautiful granite monument and honor the legacy of Ohio’s veterans with a donation to Friends of the Park. You can donate through the Friends website or by mail to the addressbelow. Please make checks payable to Friends of the Park.
