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.

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.
