Holland-Watson Veterans Memorial Park
Chickamauga's First Veterans' Memorial Park was dedicated on May 27, 2002 and the park on the corner of Crittenden Avenue and W.8th Street (across from the ball fields). The park was named after two Chickamauga Soldiers, Sgt Eddie H. Holland and CPL Thomas A. "Tommy" Watson, who lost their lives in Vietnam.
Approximately 200 citizens, many Veterans, attended the dedication ceremony. A Huey Helicopter, a symbol of the Vietnam War, is mounted on a pedestal in the center of the walking track at the park. The Park will honor all Veterans of all wars from the Chickamauga area who lost their lives in service to our Country.
