NASHVILLE—A permanent Civil War exhibit at the Hartford Welcome Center is one of a series of such displays recently installed in Tennessee Welcome Centers.

The purpose of the Civil War exhibits is to educate visitors and Tennesseans as to the important role Tennessee played in the Civil War. Each Tennessee Civil War Exhibit features an overview of Tennessee’s role in the Civil War, as well as the regional impact of the Civil War and will also promote rural tourism development through the Tennessee Civil War Trail and Discover Tennessee Trails & Byways programs. 

A ribbon cutting and dedication originally scheduled to be held Sept. 4 will now be held Thursday, Oct. 17, at 1 p.m. EST at the I-81 Sullivan County Welcome Center, located at the southbound mile marker 75.3 in Bristol, Tenn.
