Schurz / Von Steinwehr Monument

Schurz / Von Steinwehr Monument

This Civil War Monument is located in Chattanooga and is visible from Interstate 24. (Since you don't want to park on the interstate, Parker Ln will lead you to this vantage point.) This monument was erected by the state of New York to remember the actions of the Battle of Wauhatchie. On the Night of October 28-29, 1863, elements of General Carl Schurz’s and General Adolph von Steinwehr’s divisions (Union) were positioned on this small knoll, known locally as Tyndale’s Hill. Nearly a month later, Maj. General John Hooker watched the Battle of Lookout Mountain from near this spot.
