New Tennessee Civil War Maps Available

Heritage Resources Law: Protecting the Archeological and Cultural EnvironmentThe Tennessee Department of Tourist Development announces the Tennessee Civil War Trails map-guides are now available, marking the upcoming 150th anniversary of the Civil War. The map-guides chart nearly 200 Civil War sites throughout the state and serve as a tool to reach and inspire users to discover Tennessee’s rich Civil War history.

Tennessee’s Civil War Trails program, part of a multi-state Civil War Trails initiative, interprets and creates driving tours of both the great campaigns and the lesser-known Civil War sites. Tennessee, second only to Virginia in Civil War sites, joins North Carolina, Maryland, Virginia and West Virginia in this important project. The entire program has been identified by the National Trust for Historic Preservation as one of the most successful and sustainable heritage tourism programs in the nation.
