Overview

During the Civil War this strategic location provided Confederate soldiers a unique vantage point. The "lookout" on Lookout Mountain would signal the soldiers here who would in turn signal the troops in the valley. This system of signaling was very effective until the "Battle Above the Clouds" when Lookout Mountain was captured. Union soldiers later took over Signal Point and utilized its position to signal their troops and supply lines from Chattanooga to Bridgeport, Alabama.
