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!
Council Meetings are typically held the 2nd and 4th Mondays of each month.  The public is encouraged to attend.
