If I understand your post, you are speaking of Tunnel Hill, Tenn., but there were six battles at Tunnel Hill, Georgia, which is not far away.I am a little partial to Tunnel Hill, Georgia as I am one of the founders of the Tunnel Hill Historical Foundation where we have saved and preserved the old railroad tunnel, built a new heritage center and museum, are currently developing an 80 acre battlefield park which includes the Clisbe Austin House, aka Meadowlawn, which was Gen. Hood's hospital immediately after Chickamauga and Gen. Sherman's HQ as he launched what would later be known as his Atlanta Campaign, and have just acquired the original 1848 railroad Depot, one of Jefferson Davis' stops on his way to take office as President of the Confederacy.Steve Hall - Commander

Chatsworth, Georgia----- Original Message -----Steve Is this the same Tunnel as in the Andrew's Raiders, General incident? How long as the museum been there? I was in the area three years ago following the trail of the General , well I was starting North and heading South but oh well, I did not see any thing but the tunnel and only found it after driving around for a long time. Glad to hear that all of that preservation is going on in your area.
