Join us for the 150th Anniversary Battle of Blountville reenactment, in Blountville, TN on Sept. 6-8, 2013. This is a growing event and is fast becoming a draw for reenactors throughout the region. Also, this event is part of an effort to establish a park to commemorate this battle, including a visitor’s center, interpretive markers and other displays. When completed, the park will feature audio-visual aids, films, early photographs, maps, scale models and authentic artifacts found in the area. This park is intended to promote the history of Blountville and Sullivan Co., and to preserve sites connected to the battle.

Efforts to establish a Battle of Blountville Military Park has support in the state legislature, and the Town of Blountville’s downtown area is on the National Register of Historic Sites. Please join us in supporting the efforts to preserve and protect the Civil War heritage of the area.
