Maynardville, TN (PRWEB) December 31, 2013

Volunteers with the Union County Chamber of Commerce are preparing a second site for the installation of a Civil War Trails marker at the Union County Museum in Maynardville, TN. This marker will be a "trail head" marker and depicts the impact of the Civil War on the families of Union County.

Private funds for the marker were raised by the Union County Chamber of Commerce in 2011 and a first marker was placed at a site on Walker's Ford in June of 2013. Union County was a cross roads for both Union and Confederate army movement during the Civil War and some of the family farms in the region were sites for winter quartering of troops in late 1863 and early 1864.
