Located only 5 minutes
from Chattanooga, Tennessee, and about 90 minutes north of
Atlanta, Georgia, Fort Oglethorpe is a fascinating city with
a history rich in local and national color. We were home to
the 6th Cavalry and the WAC’s. Generations of
Americans serving their country entered or left their
service through the gates of our city. Fort Oglethorpe also
serves as the entrance to the Chickamauga National Military
Park, the oldest and largest of America's Civil War Parks.
Fort Oglethorpe, Chattanooga, and the Tennessee River Valley,
are wonderful places to live, to visit, and to remember. Please enjoy
our site and plan to bring your friends and family to visit us soon!
