The Friends of Fort Defiance

The Friends of Fort Defiance

With Fort Defiance being closed due to the construction of the new interpretative center, the Friends of Fort Defiance were forced to move the Living History Encampment, one of their signature events to Rotary Park this year.

The primary purpose of the Living History Encampment is to educate people about the history of Clarksville, and the Civil War. Many people living in Clarksville know absolutely nothing about the history of our city, something the friends of Fort Defiance hope to change. Clarksville is located in an area of intense activity during the Civil war,   with Fort Donelson and Fort Henry  in nearby Stewart County, and the city of Nashville just a short distance up river.  Fort Defiance was intended to help guard the river approaches to Nashville.

Tanner to hold telephone town hall meeting on August 31st

 

tannerheaderWashington D.C.– U.S. Rep. John Tanner will continue to seek input from 8th Congressional District families through telephone town hall meetings where West and Middle Tennesseans can ask questions on health care, the economy, energy and other issues facing the country.

Telephone town hall meetings are a relatively new format to allow up to thousands of participants to talk together so families from across our district can share their views and hear Congressman Tanner’s remarks on issues of mutual concern. A tele-town hall meeting is one of the best tools for Members of Congress and others to reach thousands of constituents at one time.

“The challenges facing Tennessee and our country are some of the toughest issues we have ever addressed together and require thoughtful discussion focused on solutions,” Congressman Tanner said. “As always, we are anxious to hear what is on the minds of Tennesseans so we can represent and share their views when Congress returns to session.” «Read the rest of this article»
