141 acres saved
Site of the second bloodiest battle of the Civil War, the Chickamauga battlefield today encompasses more than 5,300 acres.
Here, Union General George Thomas earned his sobriquet "The Rock of Chickamauga."
The Trust has preserved 141 acres at this landmark place, including land at the site of Reed's Bridge -- one of the battle's opening actions.
