President Abraham Lincoln called for 75,000 volunteers following the attack on Fort Sumter, Hatton reversed his position. He organized a volunteer company for State service, the Lebanon Blues (soon part of the 7th Tennessee Infantry). Hatton was elected the regiment’s colonel at Camp Trousdale in Sumner County, Tennessee, and was sent to western Virginia in July 1861.

Cedar Grove Cemetery

On May 23, 1862, Hatton was promoted to brigadier general of the Tennessee Brigade, 1st Division, Army of Northern Virginia. Eight days later, he was killed while leading his brigade at the Battle of Seven Pines in Virginia. His body was returned to Tennessee, but because Federal troops occupied Middle Tennessee, he was temporarily interred in Knoxville. On March 23, 1866, Hatton was reburied in Lebanon’s Cedar Grove Cemetery. His statue is atop the Confederate monument erected on Lebanon’s town square in 1912

The Civil War Trails is a great way to explore some of the lesser-known sites of the Civil War. The Civil War Trails span throughout Tennessee, Virginia, Maryland, North Carolina and West Virginia. In Wilson County, we have a total of 5 Civil War Trail locations that can be explored!

(Tennessee Department of Tourist Development: Tennessee Civil War Trails.) The city of Lebanon purchased the land for this beautiful cemetery in 1846. Beneath its trees lie more than 150 soldiers who served in the Confederate army during the Civil War, including many Wilson County men who enlisted in the 7th Tennessee Infantry. The focal point of Cedar Grove Cemetery is the Confederate Monument, which was erected on July 27, 1899. Gen. Robert H. Hatton, a former U.S. congressman whose statue stands in the town square, is one of the notables buried here.

Downtown Lebanon

(Tennessee Department of Tourist Development: Tennessee Civil War Trails.) This marker is located on the Historic Lebanon Square in honor of the Battle of Lebanon. In May of 1862, Colonel John Hunt Morgan’s Confederate troops set up camp around the Public Square in Lebanon as well as Cumberland University. They were attacked by the Federal Cavalry, which led to Morgan and his men fleeing Lebanon via the Rome and Trousdale Ferry Pikes to Carthage. While Federal casualties were low, about 50 of Morgan’s men were killed, 150 captured, and the remainder scattered throughout the countryside.

Seawell Hill Camp

(Tennessee Department of Tourist Development: Tennessee Civil War Trails.) On the grounds of former Castle Heights Military Academy sits the historic Seawell Hill Camp in Lebanon, TN. Confederate General Joseph Wheeler’s cavalrymen set up camp at Seawell Hill during their raid through Tennessee. A small group of Union troops in Lebanon fled to Nashville but burned their headquarters at Cumberland College before they left.

Robert Hatton House

(Tennessee Department of Tourist Development: Tennessee Civil War Trails.) Located at 327 W. Main Street in Lebanon, is the marker for the Robert H. Hatton House that was unfortunately destroyed by fire after the Civil War. Hatton was born in October in 1826, but early in his life his family moved to Lebanon. He graduated from Cumberland University and then studied law at Cumberland School of Law. Admitted to the bar in 1850, Hatton established a successful practice in Lebanon. Although he opposed secession and believed that the Union should be preserved, after

Pickett Chapel Methodist Church

(Tennessee Department of Tourist Development: Tennessee Civil War Trails.) Pickett Chapel Methodist Church is located at 209 East Market Street. In 1866, recently emancipated African Americans bought the former Methodist church, where some had worshipped as slaves, and established their own congregation. The Rev. Calvin Pickett served as their first minister.

WilCo’s Musical History

Wilson County has played its fair share of starring roles in Tennessee’s music scene. The picturesque Americana city of Watertown has hosted the production of countless music videos from artists like Little Big Town (Boondocks music video), Justin Bieber (One Less Lonely Girl music video), Miranda Lambert (We Should Be Friends music video), Kellie Pickler (Red High Heels music video), Tim McGraw (Southern Voice music video), Taylor Swift (Safe & Sound music video) and even a Garth Brooks Pepsi commercial. In addition to Watertown’s music video productions, Lebanon has hosted music videos from Kid Rock (performing at Snow White Diner in the music video First Kiss), Lady Antebellum (Just A Kiss music video), and Taylor Swift (Love Story music video filmed at Cumberland University). Due to its proximity to Nashville and benefits of rural life, Wilson County has been the home of many music legends such as Reba McEntire, Gretchen Wilson, Charlie Daniels (who even has a children’s park in Mt. Juliet with his namesake), Kelly Clarkson, Duane & Gregg Allman (Allman Brothers), Lorie Morgan, Tracy Lawrence, Uncle Jimmy Thompson (one of the first performers at the Grand Ole Opry), and more!

For history buffs, Sellars Farm State Archaeological area, an extension of Long Hunter State Park, is a family-friendly attraction situated on one of the few Native American mounds in Tennessee. Artifacts discovered at Sellars Farm indicate that the Native American community was occupied during the Mississippian Period around 900AD until 1500AD. Sellar’s Farm is located in Watertown, TN, whereas the rest of Long Hunter State Park is situated in the Mt. Juliet area of Wilson County. Enjoy fishing, kayaking, canoeing, swimming, hiking, and biking throughout Long Hunter’s 2,600 acres of pure Tennessee!

Boating

Looking for a relaxing day out on the water? WilCo’s waterways are an awesome touch to your Tennessee vacation! With Percy Priest Lake, Cedar Creek, Old Hickory Lake and the Cumberland River located within Wilson County, and with nearby Center Hill Lake, you are sure to find the perfect day on the lake during your next visit to WilCo! Love the water, but can’t fit your boat in a carryon? No worries! Boat and kayak rentals are available in the area to help you live out your lake-day dreams. Check out Four Corners Yacht Club, Safe Harbor Marina, Cedar Creek Marina and Nashville Boat Rentals for more information. You can also head to Couchville Lake in Long Hunter State Park to rent jon boats and canoes during the summer months. *VISIT WILCO TIP: Feeling extra

adventurous? The Nashville Paddle Company offers stand up paddle boarding classes on Percy Priest Lake, and “Canoe The Caney” is a fun way to Canoe the Caney Fork waterway in nearby Silver Point, TN. Even more exciting, Canoe The Caney offers a spine-tingling Haunted Canoe Tour during the Halloween season!

Trails

There’s nothing quite like a walk (or hike!) to help bring you back to nature. Here in WilCo, we have trails for any level of hiker, from beginners to experienced (and even ones where Fido can tag along).

Outdoors

Parks

Cedars of Lebanon State Park has 8 miles of hiking trails open year round where visitors frequently encounter some of WilCo’s animal residents such as deer, rabbits and turkeys. Robinson Park in Mt. Juliet hosts a ½ mile wraparound hiking trail and even offers outdoor fitness equipment! Long Hunter State Park boasts 26 miles of easy to moderate hiking trails and even has a 2 mile, paved lake trail for those who need stroller or wheelchair trail options. Check each park’s website for information on which trails allow our four-legged friends! *VISIT WILCO TIP: Rather be biking? Shutes

Branch recreation area offers a mountain biking trail for all skill levels and is located in Mt. Juliet.

Horseback Riding

There’s no better way to explore the outdoors than on horseback! Check out Juro Stables in Mt. Juliet or the riding stables in Cedars of Lebanon State Park for horseback riding trails and guided tours.

Camping

Camping is the way to go in order to truly appreciate the Tennessee outdoors. Here in WilCo, we have plenty of camping options to accommodate any size group or camping style. Cedars of Lebanon State Park has many camping options for primitive camping, RV’s, and even cabins that can be rented! For the more adventurous, Long Hunter State park has two campsites that require a 6-mile hike (and early booking) to enjoy. The Nashville East / Lebanon KOA has plenty of options from cabins to camping or RV-ing, complete with a pool and basketball courts. Have a large group of campers or RV’s? The James E. Ward Agricultural Center offers over 250 acres with 1,000 RV sites with electric and water hookups. Primitive camping is also available throughout the AG Center grounds, as well as additional facilities you can rent for your group’s event! *VISIT WILCO TIP: Ready to camp in WilCo but

don’t have an RV? Check out The Flying Ham in Mt. Juliet where you can rent cool, “canned ham-style” travel trailers to get you out of the house and into the beautiful WilCo wilderness!
