History & Civil War

"Plan Your Visit" to learn more about Jackson and West Tennessee's sites.

To begin to tell the stories of the Civil War and the impact on the communities, well let's just say, we're still uncovering them. From Shiloh National Military Park to the Denmark Presbyterian Church, Jackson and West Tennessee saw tremendous activity over the course of the war.  

Yet, out of the ashes of war, Tennesseans black and white built a new society where slavery was abolished and citizenship redefined. As such, Congress has designated the state as the Tennessee Civil War National Heritage Area. Tennessee's landscape contains many powerful reminders of the Civil War from battlefields and monuments in places such as Shiloh and Chattanooga, to the sites along the Civil War Trails stretching from Memphis to the Tri-Cities. See the maps of the time, the flags that led the regiments, and the timeline of events that forever changed the physical, social, and economic face of Tennessee.  

Visit TNcivilwar.org for a look at the State of Tennessee in it's entirety or select "Plan Your Visit" to learn more about Jackson and West Tennessee's sites.  

Sue Shelton White "One of Tennessee’s most effective suffragists, and West Tennessee native was one of the first women court reporters in the state in 1907. White joined the woman suffrage movement and helped organize the Jackson Equal Suffrage League in 1911. While working to increase support for suffrage in Tennessee, she served as recording secretary for the Tennessee Equal Suffrage Association beginning in 1913. She later came to believe that the policies and methods of the more activist National Woman’s Party (NWP) were more effective and changed her allegiance in 1918." - to learn more visit the website and facebook page.

Can you hear it? It's the beat you can only find in Jackson, halfway between Memphis' Beale Street and Nashville's Broadway in the heart of the Americana Music Triangle. This is where Elvis cut his teeth with Carl Perkins and Rock-A-Billy was born. Blues music flowed throughout the cotton fields of the region and today's talent is an exciting cross between the numerous genres of the region.

The Americana Music Triangle connects you to the people, places and stories of the world's number one music destination!

Jackson’s AMP at the West Tennessee The outdoor amphitheater next to the West Tennessee Farmer’s Market hosts free concerts by local and regional artists and movies on a large screen from May to October. Bring your lawn chairs, blankets and a picnic basket for an evening under the stars. Vendors sell food at many of the events.

Carl Perkins’ Grave Music legend and rockabilly pioneer Carl Perkins is buried in Jackson’s Ridgecrest Cemetery. When he died Jan. 19, 1998, people traveled from around the world to attend his funeral. Beatles guitarist George Harrison played Perkins’ song, “Your True Love,” during the funeral.

Carnegie Tennessee Legends of Music Museum Built in 1903 as a free library, the Carnegie Center now holds the rich history of Jackson’s musical past. It highlights the lives of local artists like Carl Perkins, Wink Martindale and Sonny Boy Williamson, the location of the first Hard Rock Cafe in the United States by founder and Jackson native Isaac Tigrett, and Jackson’s role in rock’n’roll and the birth of rockabilly.

The Jackson Area Plectral Society’s Jam Session at Casey Jones Village The Jackson Area Plectral Society holds a free jam session of old-time music from 6-9pm every Thursday.

The Ned McWherter Cultural Arts Center Attached to Jackson’s former City Hall, The Ned is the center of arts attractions downtown. You’ll find art shows, Jackson Theatre Guild productions and performers from across the country.

John Lee “Sonny Boy” Williamson’s Grave Blairs Chapel C.M.E. Cemetery, Blairs Chapel Road John Lee “Sonny Boy” Williamson was the first great blues harmonica player — easily one of the most important of the pre-war era. He made the harmonica a worthy lead instrument and opened the door for many famous players, such as Little Walter, Billy Boy Arnold and Junior Wells.
