4 days in Tennesse

Discussion in 'Living Overseas' started by iPadPlodding, Mar 24, 2012.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. This is for anyone living in (or has visited) Tennessee in the U.S. I'm heading over that way next month for 4 days and fancy doing the military history side of things. I'm researching on Google but just wondered if you had any idea on the best places to go.

  2. Fort campbell, Home of the 10st AB Div, on the Kentucky/Tennesee border.

    Not sure of the OPSEC side of things but you can only ask.

    Fort Campbell - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
  3. Tennessee had more Civil War battles than any other state except Virginia. Look up the battles of Fort Henry, Fort Donelson, Shiloh, Stone's River, Chattanooga, Lookout Mountain, Missionary Ridge, Franklin, Nashville, and the Fort Pillow massacre.
  4. Awesome advice fellas. Cheers

    Stone's River in Murfreesboro is worth a visit. The ground is very easy to understand. There are natural stone trenches which are very interesting. There's a useful museum and visitor's center (sic).

    Also it's not far from Nashville which is a good night out.

  6. To get on Bases you will need to either have a Military ID card, or go on a Guided Tour after a security check if the base has them. The Don F Pratt Museum has some interesting exhibits inside and out.
