Hartsville Battlefield Park

State Highway 141
Hartsville, TN 00000

This locally established park preserves a battlefield where confederate cavalry leader col. John Hunt Morgan had one of his greatest successes.  On December 7, 1862, with a force of about 1,300 men.  Morgan surprised a federal garrison commanded by Col. Absalom B. Moore.  Morgan’s casualties – 139 killed, wounded, and missing – were light compared to the damage he caused: 2,096 federal casualties, with 1,834 of these being captured prisoners.  The battlefield has an interpretive walking tour and a driving tour brochure of the area is also available.  The Confederate dead from the battle are buried in the Hartsville cemetery.
