Nashville Battlefield

While much of the battlefield was lost as the city expanded, sites such as the Peace Monument, Shy's Hill, Fort Negley and the Nashville National Cemetery provide visitors with opportunities to learn more about this pivotal battle.  Signage throughout the city marks the significant actions of the two-day battle, and the Tennessee State Museum holds many artifacts from the battle. The refurbished Battle of Nashville Peace Monument reopened in 1999 and honors men who fought on both sides of the battle.
