The Callahan Leadership Fund enabled  professor Sy Goodman and graduate student John Miller to bring together members of their “Military History of the Civil War” class for an all-day field trip to study the Chickamauga campaign and battlefield near Chattanooga, Tennessee on June 30, 2012.

Temperatures over 100 degrees didn't deter the group from touring the battlefield. This year marks the 150th anniversary year of the war.  Members of the Civil War Round Table of Atlanta accompanied the group.

“This trip was awesome!  I never dreamed I would get to go on such an incredible field trip,” said INTA student Juliana Crim. “This will be the highlight of my time at Georgia Tech!”

The Callahan Leadership Fund was established to stimulate research and education related to global technology and national security.
