Welcome to Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia

We were home to the 6th Cavalry and the WAC’s. Generations of Americans serving their country entered or left their service through the gates of our city. Fort Oglethorpe also serves as the entrance to the Chickamauga National Military Park, the oldest and largest of America’s Civil War Parks.
