Tennessee is rife with history, from its involvement in the dark Civil War to its hand in both contemporary and traditional music. From Nashville to Memphis, from Knoxville to Chattanooga, the Volunteer State has managed to stay relevant for a whole series of historic involvement. If you find yourself on the western side of the state, however, a visit to Fort Pillow State Historic Park is a must. Learn all about the location’s dark history and its relevance during the Civil War, or maybe go backcountry camping along the Chickasaw Bluffs. It’s an incredible park, one that shouldn’t be taken for granted.
