Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area

The Chattahoochee is a river flowing through the US state of Georgia, which originates in the southern foothills of the Appalachian Mountains. At its confluence with the Flint River, it forms the mighty Apalachicola River, which flows through the Mexican plain and empties into the bay of the same name.

Near Atlanta, there is a national recreation area named after this river, which protects a unique nature with the occurrence of rare species of plants and animals. The Chattahoochee River runs right through the middle of Atlanta. It flows from the nearby Lake Lanier, which has incredibly clear water.

South of Atlanta, we come across the vast Okefenokee Swamp, which has become home to huge turtles, alligators and numerous species of snakes. Just beyond the town of Chatsworth, you can turn off onto a trail named Tatum Lead, which leads into the Chattahoochee National Forest, which has the same conservation status as our protected landscape area.

Chickamauga & Chattanooga National Military Park

This military national park is a memorial to several military battles that took place during the American Civil War in the territory of northwestern Georgia and southeastern Tennessee. It was fought here from September to November 1863. The park consists of two main parts , Chickamauga Battlefield and Lookout Mountain. In addition, several smaller areas around the city of Chattanooga are also included. The park was founded in 1933 and covers a total area of 8,095 hectares.

Chattanooga is the fourth largest city in the state of Tennessee and the Tennessee River flows through it. The city is located near the Georgia border and is surrounded by the Appalachian Mountains. The original inhabitants of this area were Indians, and settlement is documented as far back as the Paleolithic period. Members of two Indian tribes – the Koasati and the Tuskegee – live in the Chickamauga & Chattanooga NMP Park today.

One of the great battles took place on Chickamauga Creek near Chattanooga. It was here that Commander Braxton Bragg with the Southern Confederate Army defeated the Northern Army of William Rosecrans in full force. Tens of thousands of soldiers died here, both on the Confederate side and on the Union side.
