Tennessee Civil War Vacations

Join us in commemorating the 150th anniversary of the Civil War. Explore our rich history that tells of the division between Tennessee's Unionists and Confederates that shaped the war experience. Our location, river and rail paths, industries and farmlands all combined to make Tennessee a crucial state for either side. More than 1,462 battles, at least one fought in each of our 95 counties, brought destruction to the landscape.

Yet, out of the ashes of war, Tennesseans black and white built a new society where slavery was abolished and citizenship redefined. As such, Congress has designated the state as the Tennessee Civil War National Heritage Area. Tennessee's landscape contains many powerful reminders of the Civil War from battlefields and monuments in places such as Shiloh and Chattanooga, to the sites along the Civil War Trails stretching from Memphis to the Tri-Cities. See the maps of the time, the flags that led the regiments, and the timeline of events that forever changed the physical, social, and economic face of Tennessee.
