All Individuals, families and groups welcome.

What: It was at Shy’s Hill on Dec. 16, 1864 during the Battle of Nashville that Federal troops finally broke the Confederate line on the left flank, resulting in a massive Rebel retreat and a decisive Union victory. Jim Kay, Past-President of the Battle of Nashville Preservation Society, will give a 20-minute discussion of the Battle of Nashville – one of the final large scale engagements of the Civil War – on top of the hill. The walk up is about 10 minutes. Don’t miss the chance to chat with the Mayor, learn about Nashville’s history, meet fellow community members and get healthy. Bring your camera, water, and walking shoes!

When: December 10, 2011. Walk begins at 1 p.m.

Where: Shy's Hill is located off Benton Smith Road. Look for state historical marker and wooden steps up steep hill.
Directions: From I-440, exit Hillsboro Road and travel south to Harding Place and turn left. Turn right at Shy’s Hill Road and turn left onto Benton Smith Road to historical marker. Park safely at side of road. Steps up the hill to the left.

Note: The walk is short but steep and the path is covered with leaves. Please wear comfortable shoes with good traction, such as hiking boots. Also, remember to dress for the weather. The current forecast is sunny but cold (high of 41 degrees).

Questions? Contact Jenna Smith, Office of the Mayor: Jenna.Smith@nashville.gov or call (615) 862-6000.
