Uncovering history in 12 South

12th South is in the heart of where a major Civil War battle occurred in Middle Tennessee in the 1860s.  The Battle of Nashville marked the last time that the Western Confederacy would have the strength to initiate an offensive campaign.  General John Bell Hood in command of the Army of Tennessee with approximately 30,000 men fought a battle against General George H. Thomas in command of the Army of the Cumberland with approximately 50,000 men.

The Battle of Nashville was fought on December 15th and 16th, 1862.  The Battle of Nashville resulted in the loss of approximately 4,000 men from the North and South, wounded and killed.   The Eagle Breast Plate was found on private property with permission, only a short distance from 12th South.  This  beautiful artifact would have been dropped likely during the first days during the Battle of Nashville.  Scenic Sunnyside Mansion, in 12th South, was used as a hospital for injured soldiers during the American Civil War.   Now tranquil walking trails wind through Sevier Park.   On Tuesdays, seasonally, you can find fresh produce at the Farmers Market here.  Another site not to miss in the area is the Battle of Nashville Monument.  It’s only a few blocks from Sunnyside Mansion.
