Fort Defiance Interpretive Center to commemorate the 151st Anniversary of the Surrender of Clarksville
Clarksville, TN – The Fort Defiance Interpretive Center, located at 120 Duncan Street, will host a living history weekend to commemorate the 151st anniversary of the Surrender of Clarksville, Saturday, February 16th from 10:00am to 4:00pm and Sunday, February 17th from 1:00pm to 4:00pm.
The surrender of Clarksville was a significant event in our Civil War history. Once Fort Defiance and the city fell, there was nothing to stop Union gunboats from capturing Nashville, TN, which was the first Confederate state capital to fall to the North. Upon the surrender, the citizens of Clarksville endured four years of Union occupation.
This two-day event is free and open to the public.
