Visitors to Land Between the Lakes can explore the Homeplace 1850s Farm, Fort Henry, and Fort Heiman, as well as Fort Donelson National Battlefield in nearby Dover, TN, to learn more about the Civil War. The Homeplace 1850s Farm is similar to farms where Civil War soldiers of the area were from. The Fort Henry Trails System at Land Between the Lakes follows routes Union soldiers once traveled to Fort Donelson. The National Park Service has supplied a commemorative sign about Fort Henry.
