USA Today reported yesterday that two new markers for the Civil War Trail were placed at Andrew Jackson’s homstead, The Hermitage, and a near by Confederate Soldier’s Home. The Hermitage is linked to the Soldier’s Home because Jackson’s former homestead offered land for the use of the home, which operated until 1933. These two markers are part of the larger Civil War Trail, which is dedicated to showing different state’s involvement and importance during the Civil War. These markers are just two of dozens that are in the works for an extended Trail, which will cross not just Tennesse, but Maryland, North Carolina, Virginia, and West Virginia, as well. This certainly is an exciting time for Civil War buffs who are looking forward to the sesquicentennial of the war.
