Sat, Mar 16 1:00 pm


Join us for a day of service learning as we soak in the history of Nashville's Fort Negley. Built entirely by African American soldiers during the Civil War, Fort Negley was a Union stronghold during the Battle of Nashville. At the time of its construction, Fort Negley was the largest inland military fortification in the entire country. Through a variety of primary sources, the Fort Negley Visitor's Center tells a comprehensive history of the fort's involvement in the war as well as it's 20th-century significance. We'll have the opportunity to take part in a guided tour of the fort alongside knowledgable experts including a civil war historian from Vanderbilt University. At the conclusion of the tour, we will help in a variety of service projects around the fort to ensure that our neighbors will be able to enjoy it for years to come!
