A marker without a Civil War battle?

"... markers were installed last week at the home of President Andrew Jackson and the Confederate Soldiers' Home and Cemetery.

The purpose of the trails program is to raise awareness of the roles that states played in the Civil War and to create driving tours of battle sites. Other states participating include Virginia, North Carolina, Maryland and West Virginia."

To find out why a marker was placed at Andrew Jackson's home, even though no battle was fought there, see Historical markers link Tenn. sites to Civil War Trail from USA Today.

Happy family tree climbing!
