Take A Trip Back In Time At This Historic Fort Just Outside Of Nashville

Nashville is immersed in history, simply awash in the weight and beauty of the generations long before our own. It’s an incredible thing, to live in a city that’s full of stories, good and bad and difficult and lovely. The Civil War was fought in Nashville’s own backyard, as a matter of fact. Though it remains a dark stain on the history of the United States, it is still powerful to remember and learn from the past: something you can do in spades at the Fort Donelson National Battlefield.
