Knoxville Civil War Gateway Opening

The new Knoxville Civil War Gateway located at the corner of Gay Street and Hill Avenue will open on Saturday, April 28, 2012 at 11 AM. A downtown walking tour of Civil War Knoxville will be introduced to the public. While the tour is designed to be self-guided, local Civil War enthusiasts will be available on opening day to lead groups along the route, discussing places, people and events of 1861-1865 which are all defining elements in our community’s past. Tours are on a first come first served basis and will leave every half hour from the front door of the Gateway 11 AM until 4 PM.

Beginning May first the Civil War Gateway will be open Tuesday-Saturday, 11 AM- 4 PM, providing maps, walking tour brochures, videos, troop information, and graphic presentations of the Civil War story here in East Tennessee. Saturday guided tours will be announced and conducted regularly. Consult www.knoxcivilwar.org for all details.
