4 days in Tennesse

#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.

Cheers

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.

Where in TN are you going? It's a bit of a trek from one side to t'other.

I'm not sure Tennessee is oozing military history such as the Revolutionary War or the Civil War so much as its Easterly neighbors.

Go a bit further south or east for mil history. I live in the northern 'burbs of Atlanta. There's Civil War history at every turn. I just don't see it when we go up to TN. Not saying it definitely isn't there, just not as prevalent. No idea about Nashville or Memphis.
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.

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.
