The folks at Land Between the Lakes are having a Civil War hiking tour of Ft. Henry’s outer works this coming Saturday, February 6th. The tour begins at 1 PM and concludes by 4 PM. There is no cost for the tour. February 6th, 1862 is when Ft. Henry surrendered to Union Army and Navy forces under Gen. Ulysses S. Grant and Flag Officer Andrew Foote.
Everyone will meet at the Ft. Henry Hiking Trail parking lot beforehand. Take HWY 79 west through Dover, TN and go until you reach Ft. Henry Road (the last road to the right into LBL before you reach the Tennessee River). Take that a few miles (pass Piney Creek Campground) until you see the signs for Boswell Landing and turn left there. At the gravel road go straight (the road to Boswell turns right here) and it takes you to the parking area. Please wear proper clothing and good walking shoes or boots.
For more information call (270)924-2020.
This will, of course, be dependent on the weather conditions.
