If coming from Nashville on I 24, get off at the Beech Grove and Wartrace exit and begin your tour at the Beech Grove Confederate Cemetery Park. Coming from Chattanooga, take the Sewanee exit off I 24 and follow Hwy. 41-A towards Sewanee and follow the trail in reverse.
The Tullahoma Campaign of 1863 is often overshadowed by the simultaneous events of Gettysburg and Vicksburg, even though the results were strategically more significant than Gettysburg and tactically equivalent to Vicksburg. With the loss of manpower, agricultural staples, the industrial base and, most importantly, the Chattanooga rail center, the Tullahoma Campaign was the beginning of the end for the Confederacy. Follow the path of the campaign and the battles along this 130-mile trail.
