Red Boiling Springs, TN 37150
Places once prominent in Tennessee's antebellum transportation routes are sometimes almost forgotten places today. This road intersection was of significant strategic value in fighting the war in Tennessee's Upper Cumberland region. During the Civil War, countless soldiers and cavalrymen passed through Gibbs Crossroads. Confederate Gen. Braxton Bragg established a temporary headquarters at the crossroads in September 1862 during his Kentucky Campaign.
