Last September there was a Battle of Franklin re-enactment, and that appears to be an annual thing: as you can see by this Google search. There aren't a great deal of re-enactments around Nashville or Franklin as Gwoodie pointed out because of urban sprawl. That said, there are a number of living history events scheduled this year at Stones River (150th anniversary of the battle) and all around the area.

If you want to take a scenic drive (down the Natchez Trace would be my suggestion) you can visit Shiloh...there's a 150th anniversary re-enactment there March 29th. That might be pretty cool to see. Shiloh is definitely worth the drive if you're even remotely interested in the Civil War. Shiloh was the first major battle in the West and was the bloodiest battle for a very long time. Shiloh is near Savannah TN...close to the Mississippi border...about 2 hours away on the Trace or 1:30 by highway.

As for most southerners wanting to forget...I'm not sure that's true...especially now with the 150th anniversary remembrances going on all across the south. But there's a fine line between "celebrating" it and "remembering" it. Most people seem to fall under the "remembrance" category though you do run into those diehards fall into the other camp.

I went back to look for a thread I started when looking for painters, but seems it disappeared, as well my recommendation for movers. What's the deal? Thought would be helpful, as the painter thread was for me.
So CountrygirltoB THANK YOU for your recommendation. Dennis of 99 dollar painter is just wonderful. We were very impressed with him and his prices.

I was told Shiloh is one of the places to visit even before we were looking at moving to Tennessee. Reading through the Battle of Franklin things online there are a lot of articles about how much of the battlefield has been lost to development. A very different history to what I left where towns are just barely a hundred years old and there are no buildings from even those days.

The closest "big" city to Shiloh is really Corinth, MS...which is why the battle was fought there to begin with. Which is probably why the majority of the battlefield remains in tact. There's a Civil War museum in Corinth that might be worth checking out...I didn't get a chance to see it when we were down there but have read that it is nice.

Stones' River also is one of the most endangered battlefield sights due to suburban encroachment. Seems like I read an article a few years ago that it was on the National Parks Services top 5 most endangered battlefields.

Here are some interesting details about the Greensboro North plan in southern Gallatin. I know it's a 20 year buildout, but this will do much to get the area from northern Hendersonville to Gallatin to really grow...including the Station Camp area.

airen123 Your painter thread did not disappear; it is right there for anyone to see: any suggestions for painters? (interior)

As far as a movers thread, I went back through each of your posts for an entire year and I found that you posted in moving threads but I did not find any threads that you started.

To find any of your posts click on Search>Advanced Search> and follow the screen.

If you need any other help just let me know.

Cool article with photograpic evidence of wild animals right in the heart of Nashville off of West End Avenue. Looks pretty "woodsy"...must be out near Belle Meade somewhere, but still...coyotes, foxes, hawks, turkeys, etc.
