Traces of a first settlement show that the region was already inhabited in the Stone Age. The town was founded in 1816 by chief John Ross and served under the name of Ross's Landing as a commercial center with the people of Cherokee. After the violent expulsion of these Indians in 1838, the city was named Chattanooga, supposedly derived from the nearby Lookout Mountain. Another interpretation from the language of the herokee means "crow's nest". During the American Civil War several battles took place near the city. In the 20th century, the city became an important industrial site, unfortunately with the reputation of being the "dirtiest city in America." However, this has improved significantly. In 1941, the city became world-famous for Glenn Miller’s play "Chattanooga Choo Choo".
