Lytle Monument as it appeared when dedicated in 1890

The Cincinnati, Ohio General William H. Lytle Camp #10, Sons of Union Veterans and the not-for-profit Friends of Chickamauga & Chattanooga National Military Park are working together to restore the Lytle Monument as a legacy gift to the nation in commemoration of the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Chickamauga and Lytle’s death. These two partners plan to restore the monument, return the surrounding area closer to its 1863 appearance, renovate the access trail to the spot, and rededicate the Lytle Monument with public ceremonies planned for September 2013. The entire project is estimated to cost $65,000, and the partners invite contributions from all quarters.

   Summer 2010 facelifts highlight ongoing Park need

The Park's Orchard Knob Reservation in Chattanooga, Tennessee is closed to the public for visitor safety through August 6, 2010, as its largest monuments undergo what Park Cultural Resources Manager Jim Szyjkowski calls a "hundred year face lift." Orchard Knob, as well as Cravens House on Lookout Mountain, is getting attention this summer thanks to a one-time funding windfall. The Friends of the Park applaud the restoration efforts at both Park sites, but say that the 120 year-old National Park's $10-20 million restoration backlog shouldn't have to rely on occasional special funding and deserves a longer-term solution.  read more (813 words)
