The new Tennessee Civil War Trails program has begun with installation of interpretive signs in the Franklin area and in Blountville. More than a dozen signs in Columbia and Franklin outline a critical phase of Confederate Gen. John B. Hood's 1864 campaign to regain control of the state.
New sites in Greeneville, Charleston, Cleveland, Gallatin, Jackson, Denmark, Granville, Summerton, Five Points and Nashville were announced in June 2009.
In September 2009, 18 new sites were added in the following counties: Loudon, Monroe, Cumberland, Sumner, Montgomery, Dickson, and Claiborne.
