The Blue and Gray Trail

The Blue & Gray Trail pays tribute to some of the Civil War's most dramatic events. The thievery of Andrews' Raiders made famous in the Disney film "The Great Locomotive Chase" is noted in numerous railroad depots, historic markers, museums and events from Kennesaw to Tunnel Hill. Consider the site of one of the bloodiest Confederate victories where over 34,000 soldiers died - Chickamauga and Chattanooga was named the first National Military Park in 1890. Places like Missionary Ridge, Allatoona Pass and Pickett's Mill beckon you to remember more.

Along the Blue & Gray are historic Bed & Breakfasts, home cooked meals in local diners, and shops filled with Civil War memorabilia. Encounter life on the battlefield at many High Country reenactments and living history encampments. Recreational opportunities are endless in the land of the Blue & Gray.
