There are many great Civil War sights in the Chattanooga area.  Although, I would have to say that I have always been disapointed with Lookout Mt. Missionary Ridge area.  As Ogden, the head of the National Park says only about 10 percent of the Battle there is conserved.  One great thing is that you can get a great birds-eye view, that unlike the now demolished Gettysburg tower, was avalible to the Generals of 1863. 

Where you go next is up to your intrest, but Chickamauga is a must.  A great tour guide for both sites is the tour book written by Steven Woodworth.  From there you can either go north and see many of the Nashville related sites, or South to the Atlanta Campaign/ Great Locamotive chase sites.

A base in Chattanooga is great because both areas are within about a two hour driving radius.
