Friends of Ft. Defiance is currently a small group. We need other commited people who are willing to help preserve our Civil War sites and educate people on Clarksville’s important role in the Civil War. If you are interested, please come to our meeting and see what we do. You could join the board or just volunteer your help. We need the special talent of people who think our city’s history is important.

The Second Annual Dinner at Defiance promises to be both educational and exciting. Bring your own picnic blanket or chairs and have a BBQ picnic in historic Fort Defiance with Civil War soliders and civilians. Learn about life during the Civil War, the history of Fort Defiance and enjoy a delicious picnic dinner while listening to period musicians perform.
Tickets are $5.00 each and can be obtained by contacting any of the Fort Defiance board members. Proceeds will go to Friends of Fort Defiance for the funding of living history events and education about the only existing Civil War fort in Clarksville, Tennessee
