In 1863, the Cravens family spent Christmas away from their home on Lookout Mountain. In fact, only a skeleton of their once vibrant dwelling stood at Christmas. Union soldiers and war correspondents camping on Lookout Mountain stripped the home of its wood for tent flooring, firewood, and souvenirs. Learn about some of the experiences Union and Confederate soldiers and their families experienced after the Battles for Chattanooga during your visit to Cravens House.
