Tennessee Civil War National Heritage Area

The Tennessee Civil War National Heritage Area (TCWNHA) helps preserve and document the legacy of the war's profound effect on Tennessee. Encompassing the entire state, the Heritage Area features the historic sites and communities in eight major corridors that follow river and rail systems and tell the stories of profound social, political and physical upheaval in this crucial battleground state.

Sites in the TCWNHA include major battlefields, like Shiloh and Chickamauga, as well as sites on the war's home front, such as historic and century farms; industrial sites, mines, forges, and factories that supported the war effort; and transportation systems. The Heritage Area addresses regional divisions, from the cotton economy of West Tennessee to the Union stronghold of the eastern mountains and all the community conflict in between.

The TCWNHA is a partnership of local, state and federal groups working together to preserve and maintain the sites, documents and historic record of the war and its aftermath. The partnership is managed by the Center for Historic Preservation at Middle Tennessee State University.
