Tennessee’s Civil Rights Trail Will Give You A Fascinating Look Back In Time

Tennessee, being a part of the faith-haunted south, perhaps has one of the most speckled pasts of any state in the Union. As a participant of the Confederate campaign during the Civil War and a hotbed of activity during the Civil Rights Movement, the Volunteer State has spades of history stretching back hundreds of years. Tennessee is home to ten stops on the Civil Rights Trail, each one important and fascinating, but if you’re looking for a few quick stops these five places throughout the state are necessary.

This forgotten gravesite in Tennessee is also a pretty incredible look at the state’s past.
