General James Longstreet’s Headquarters, winter of 1863-1864




East Tennessee and the Lakeway Area are blessed with both natural beauty and a great
number of tourist opportunities. For history lovers, the area serves as an important geographic
location for early settlers heading out West, and a strategic location for both the Union and
Confederate Armies during the Civil War. Unfortunately, only a small amount of our historical sights
and relevance to the war have been preserved. The General Longstreet Museum in Russellville,
 Tennessee is one great exception.
