Southern Heritage and Veterans Festival

At 2 pm on Friday, 11 November 2016 (Veterans Day), as part of the Southern Heritage and Veterans Festival, the Sons of Confederate Veterans will dedicate a Civil War Trails marker on the grounds of Elm Springs, the SCV National headquarters in Columbia TN. The marker tells the story of the attempted torching of the house and the successful attempts to save it by Brigadier General Frank Armstrong's cavalry brigade during the 1864 Nashville Campaign. This would be very close to the 152nd anniversary of the event. Come enjoy the event not only for this dedication, but also the Southern Heritage & Veterans Festival.  There will be tours of the historic antebellum mansion, a living history encampment, sutlers and vendors, and even inflatables and hay rides for children to enjoy.
