Description

The exploration, use, and commercial development of nine Chattanooga-area caves is a very interesting story. Learn how for 8,000 years, the caves were used by the Cherokees until their relocation in 1838; how settlers explored and used these caves; how the caves were mined for saltpeter, the main ingredient of gunpowder, during both the War of 1812 and the Civil War; how Nickajack Cave was the most visited cave during the Civil War. Read never-before-published stories of fascinating discoveries deep inside Lookout Mountain. Be amazed by the Great Cave Hoax of 1927.
