Fort Oglethorpe

Camp Forrest of World War I should not be confused with the much larger Camp Forrest of World War II, which was located northwest of Chattanooga near Tullahoma, Tennessee.  During World War I, Camp Forrest was co-located with Camp Greenleaf and Camp McLean at Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia.  Its wooden barracks were erected among the monuments honoring Union and Confederate dead in the Battle of Chickamauga.  Its primary purpose was to train infantry engineers.  It was as short-lived as its colleague camps, and was decommissioned in December 1918.
