SE Tennessee to lure tourists for Civil War anniversary with driving tour, lesser-known sites





Chattanooga-area officials are working to lure tourists to lesser-known Civil War sites over the next few years as the region looks ahead to the 150th anniversary of the Civil War, which begins in 2011 and runs for four years.

The Southeast Tennessee Tourism Association has plotted dozens of historic sites on a driving tour and produced a brochure highlighting some lesser-known Civil War landmarks, according to the Chattanooga Times Free Press.

The brochure, "Tennessee's Civil War Trails, Fighting for the Rails," identifies 47 sites in a 10-county region. Details at http://www.southeasttennessee.com/ (click on "Civil War Trail").
