Fort Sanders Battlefield

You are here


Long ago overcome by development, the Fort Sanders area in Knoxville just west of downtown along 17th Street became the site of many Victorian homes built decades after the war.  The McClung Museum at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville features a permanent exhibit on the battle at Fort Sanders and the Knoxville Campaign of 1863. Artifacts found at the site of nearby Morgan Hill are also highlighted in the exhibit. A driving tour of Knoxville Civil War sites is available at the Visit Knoxville Visitor Center on Gay Street.
