Iddles and myself should have gone to Church As this is a great Church City but instead of doing so we went up on Lookout Mountain. We went up on the new incline which has ouly been built two weeks and came Down on the old incline. This Mountain is Twenty four Hundred feet High from the Tennessee River and standing on the table Rock you can see seven different states Cun see la Flati Miles on a Clear Day and can see the mo6t Beautiful scenery you have . What a wonder it is to me that general Hooker Ever climbed that Mountain and drove the enemy As he did. From Cincinnati we travelled Over a mountainous country for fifty Miles and then struck a Fine country for about one Hundred Miles but then we struck the most god forsaken country that Man Ever need look at. We came through thirty Oue Tunnel Aud it is All mountains and valleys Oak grubs and Jack Pines and nothing growing to keep alive the few human beings on the hillsides if Yon can Call them human beings for they done to live they just a and sleep their lives out. Or. Iddles and i spent tuesday Forenoon in the National cemetery at Chattanooga Aud Learned there were thirteen thousand Union soldiers buried there. They done to allow rebel soldiers or any one else to be buried there except the Noble boys or heroes who died for our country. Capt. Trindle a wounded Soldier has change of the National cemetery and explained All questions we asked him about the Graves and the grounds. Tuesday afternoon we took a walk on Mission Ridge to Sherman height and two Milos beyond. At this Point we Are told was some of the hardest fighting done on Mission Ridge and there is a Tower placed there by the government seventy five feet High for visitors to go on to View the Battlefield and the City. There Are two towers on missionary rid and four of Chickamauga Battlefiel giving visitors a grand View. We leave for Atlanta in the morning. From Atlanta Georgia under Dale of the 8th the letter is continued or. Iddles and i arrived Here the 3d and think we will stay week looking Over the exposition and the sur Roan Ding country. We have not seen any Snow since we left Michigan and it does not seem much like Home to us. We have been on the grounds of the exposition three Days and one Day at Grant Park. This is located on the same ground the Battle of Atlanta was fought a Lily 22d, 18 14. Some of the old breastworks Are there Yek there Are four Cannon left in the Park that were used by the rebels at fort Walker. There is a Fine Monument erected pm the spot where Gen. Mcpherson fell one of the noblest generals in the onion army. The Georgia people done to have much to say about the late War. But it is remarkable what Atlanta has done since the War. She was left in ruins and now has 100,000 people Aud a Fine City and the exposition is simply grand for a City the six of her. Last wednesday was Ohio Day and the state made a fairly Good showing considering the cold weather. Fri Day was Maryland Day but saturday the 7th, was the Day she celebrated. The governor and his staff with i thousand soldiers were present and the Parade was Fine. The governor of Maryland and mayor of Baltimore were present and a poke in the auditor us the governor of Georgiu and and Elbe mayor of Atlanta spoke also. It did not sound like Northern talk to us when they spoke about those interests of the solid South. Well tomorrow la Michigan Day and i wish every Man woman end a Hytt to Tam at Mackey a.
