Entitled – Chattanooga. Lookout Mountain and Battlefield.
From a Photo by J.B. Linn, Tenn.
Below the picture an inscription reads:
Chattanooga. – Leaving Chicago we now proceed to Cincinnati by the Pennsylvania Railroad – a distance of 298 miles – the journey occupying eleven hours. Then, starting from Cincinnati at 8.30 in the morning, we arrive at Chattanooga at 9.0’clock the same evening. This latter trip is by the far-famed Queen and Crescent route. Chattanooga, the third city of Tennessee contains 29,100 inhabitants, and lies on the left bank of the Tennessee River, 670 miles from Washington. This city was a point of great strategic importance during the Civil War, and several battles were fought in the neighbourhood. The best general idea of the military operations is obtained from Lookout Mountain, which rises on the south side of the city to an altitude of 2,125ft., and commands a superb view, extending into seven States. The summit may be reached by railway (10 miles) or by a tramway up an inclined plane from the suburb of St. Elmo. The four-storied hotel, shown in the above view, is known as Lookout Inn : it is nearly 400ft. long, and contains no fewer than 1,000 beds. Beyond the ridge is the battlefield of Chickamauga, where 30,000 men were killed and wounded out of 112,000 engaged. As we have said before, the view from this point embraces land in seven States; the curves and windings of the Tennessee River for a length of 20 miles; the City of Chattanooga on the north; and the Great Smoky Mountains on the east. The writer well remembers sitting on the veranda of Lookout Inn and surveying the vast panorama, glorified by the setting sun. Below lay the busy City of Chattanooga, the smoke of her furnaces and factories and the distant hum of her wheels forming a charming contrast with the repose of the mountains and valleys around her. Turning from the valley, one beheld range upon range of mountains, stretching away to Alabama on the south, and Georgia and North Carolina on the east.
