Dodging the Roadkill: A Visit To The Military Memorial Museum

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyCrossville, TN – On a beautiful day in May, I joined several other bikers for a day trip to Crossville, Tennessee. We were going to visit the Military Memorial Museum.

And of course, ride the beautiful Cumberland Plateau.

In all of my years, I had never known that this museum existed, much less, that Tennessee was the home to four POW Camps during the war.

“Camp Crossville” along with Camp Forrest in Tullahoma, Camp Campbell in Clarksville, and Camp Tyson in Henry County is where German POW’s were sent. There isn’t much evidence of the other camps today, but in Crossville, what remains of the actual camp is now a 4-H camp. The Military Memorial Museum houses the memories of the war.
