Civil War Tidbits:
The Third Tennessee Infantry Regiment, Company K. was the only complete unit from Lawrence County to serve during the Civil War.. There was a large number of men going to Nashville to join up. But before they got there the battle forced them to split up and join different units.

The last battle of the Civil War in Tennessee was at Sugar Creek near Appleton in Lawrence County in December, 1864.

The Lawrence County Courthouse was spared from being burned late in 1863. Because Major Gibbon and the Union soldiers feared damage to the Mexican War Monument erected beside the courthouse.
