Veteran's Day Civil War Bus Tour - History in Brass and Stone: Remembering Knoxville’s Military Heritage

Join McClung Museum of Natural History and Culture for History in Brass and Stone: Remembering Knoxville’s Military Heritage. Joan Markel, curator of civil war history, will lead this special Veterans Day-themed version of our popular Civil War bus tours. Attendees will observe how the "Volunteer" legacy of military sacrifice is memorialized in obscure locations all around Knoxville.

The bus tour will include beer or cider and water compliments of Cherokee Distributing Company (for our guests over 21), a keepsake McClung koozie, soft pretzels and dip from Holly’s Eventful Dining, and the two hour tour. Each guest will also receive a facsimile booklet of Orlando Poe’s 1886 article “The Defense of Knoxville.” A portion of each ticket is tax deductible. Non-member tickets include a one year membership to the McClung Museum of Natural History and Culture. For details about membership visit our website.
