      Knoxville History Hike - Battle of Fort Sanders Anniversary

      We'll visit the exact location where the Confederate attempt to take Knoxville from the Union took place in a 20-minute battle. Walk around the area of the former interior of Civil War Fort Sanders where Union troops awaited the attack on the morning of November 29, 1863 and see remnants of that fort that were thought to have disappeared a hundred years ago. Easy 3-mile hike with Charles and Terry Faulkner, co-authors of the UT Press book Rediscovering Civil War Fort Sanders.

      Meet at Earth Fare Parking lot next to Third Creek Greenway at 1 p.m. or at Fort Sanders Manor Apartment stairway entrance, 410 17th St. at 1:15 p.m.
