Overview

Within 20 years of the end of the Civil War, Chattanooga was becoming the "Dynamo of Dixie." Entrepreneurs and capital from the North were welcomed to the city. New railroads made the area a transportation hub. Fortunes were made in finance, industry, and tourism. Located at the foot of Lookout Mountain, St. Elmo was Chattanooga's first suburb. The founder of the then-independent town, A. M. Johnson and other community leaders chartered the Forest Hills Cemetery in the late 1870s. Many Chattanooga-area families obtained sites within the cemetery, now on the National Register of Historic Places. A rarity for the Reconstruction South, these families included a number of African Americans. From the famous to the infamous, from the remembered to the nearly forgotten, Images of America: Chattanooga's Forest Hills Cemetery highlights a number of Chattanoogans interred in this picturesque historic cemetery.

Meet the Author

After moving to the Chattanooga area, Gay Morgan Moore developed an interest in the community's unique history. The images in this book are from a variety of sources, including the Chattanooga-Hamilton County Bicentennial Library archives. Many of the families whose ancestors are included also graciously contributed photographs. This is Moore's second book for Arcadia Publishing. The first, Images of America: Canton was published in 2009 and features Moore's Ohio hometown.
