THE BATTLE OF LOOKOUT MOUNTAIN
By JAMES WALKER
The Civil War "Battle Above the Clouds" was fought on the North slope of Lookout Mountain, Tennessee, November 24, 1863. Military artist James Walker witnessed the battle and sketched scenes to render this historically accurate 13' by 30' painting. The painting, completed in 1874, is now on public display at the Point Park Visitor Center, Chickamauga-Chattanooga National Military Park, Lookout Mountain, Tennessee. The home place of Jeremiah and his daughter Nancy Elizabeth Fryar can be seen in the background of the painting at the Point.
