Fort Negley Service Day: Lightning 100's Team Lightning

  • 1100 Fort Negley Blvd. Nashville, TN 37203 (map)

Join us for a day of service learning as we soak in the history of Nashville's Fort Negley. Built entirely by African American soldiers during the Civil War, Fort Negley was a Union stronghold during the Battle of Nashville. At the time of it's construction, Fort Negley was the largest inland military foritification in the entire country. Through a variety of primary sources, the Fort Negley Visitor's Center tells a comprehesive history of the fort's involvement in the war as well as it's 20th century significance.

We'll have the opportunity to take part in a guided tour of the fort alongside knowledgeable experts including a civil war historian from Vanderbilt University. At the conclusion of the tour we will help in a variety of service projects around the fort to ensure that our neighbors will be able to enjoy it for years to come!
