SESQUICENTENNIAL EVENTS BEING PLANNED
Multiple Nashville and Middle Tennessee historical groups are hard at work coordinating events to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Nashville which was fought in Nashville on December 15-16, 1864. Calendars should be marked for Saturday, December 13, 2014, for the multi-site, city-wide, all-day program.
