Chattanooga, the capital of Hamilton county, Tennessee, in the United States, is on the left bank of the Tennessee, which is navigable during eight months of the year. There is also good railway accommodation, and there is much trade in coal, iron-ore, and timber, produced in the district. Saw-mills and wood-work factories are the chief industries. General Grant here defeated the Confederates in 1862 and 1863.
