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, 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.
