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

General James Longstreet

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 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.

On the right sidebar you will find a  donation button to Paypal where you can make a tax deductible donation to the Lakeway Civil War Preservation Association. Any amount will be appreciated, and 100% of the monies collected go toward paying off the mortgage so that additional donations and monies earned through the museum can be applied toward further development at this historic gem.
