Rome, TN 00000
Located on the Cumberland River at the mouth of Round Lick Creek, Rome once rivaled Carthage as a port and trade center until it began to decline, along with the steamboats, in the early 20th century. During the Civil War, Confederate General John Morgan's troops escaped a Union attack in Lebanon, finding their getaway in Rome: the ferry anchored on their side of the river. The historic ferry continued in operation through the late 1920s.
