It's Happening Again Christmas in Occupied Clarksville TN 

Fort Defiance will be having a celebration depicting a Christmas during the occupied years of the 1860's. These were hard times during the Civil War back when Christmases were simple. A special meal or dessert was shared, a small gift perhaps or sharing a piece of candy made this time of year special. This is something to see and reflect on. Christmas in Occupied Clarksville is a special event.

Christmas in Occupied Clarksville

The day is Sunday, December 16th from 3-4 and again from 5-6 PM. Step back in time with period costumes, reenactments, Santa, games and refreshments. Santa will be there to read to children. Fort Defiance Civil War and Interpretive Center has much to share throughout the year and is open 7 days a week. 

Bring friends, bring family or come by yourself. This historic site was occupied by both Armies during the war but was held the longest by the Union Army.

The park overlooks the river with a precipice that allowed a good view of the river and the town of Clarksville. This park is managed by the Tennessee Parks System. 

Christmas at Fort Defiance is FREE and open to the public.

For further information about the event contact Fort Defiance, 120 Duncan St. Clarksville, TN or call 931-472-3351.

Debbie Reynolds - History preservation is important for people to know. I checked out the link and the feeling of nostalgia settled in my stomach. A re-enactment puts things into perspective in ways history books and articles on the Internet can't duplicate. It would be nice if more families planned a trip with their children to witness a snapshot in history so that they can have a greater appreciation for America and who we are as people then and now. Afterall, everyone doesn't live in a Disney world. TN is rich in history.

Debbie I love the idea, preserving History, lately I noticed there is a trend wanting to rewrite history and that reminds me of when I was growing up in Communist Hungary... the regime in power rewrote history, Endre
