Clifton, TN 38425
From the fall of Fort Donelson to the war's end, Clifton experienced significant military activity. It was an important port on the Tennessee River and a primary ferry-crossing between Middle and West Tennessee. During his famous West Tennessee raid of December 1862, Confederate Gen. Nathan Bedford Forrest used the Clifton ferry as he entered West Tennessee. He used it again when he left.
