Memphis is located in a section of the state that is rich in Civil War History. This is why Sweet Magnolia Tours offers a Civil War Day Tour based out of Memphis. Even though the city has plenty of culture and history to offer within the city limits, there are also many interesting places to go outside of Memphis.
Sweet Magnolia Tours has chosen some special locations to bring our guests to give them the context and information necessary to better understand some important battles in the Civil War.
Here are some of the places you can see on the Civil War Day Tour from Sweet Magnolia Tours.
