The Civil War 150th Battlefield preservation plate includes the official Tennessee Sesquicentennial logo.  The Tennessee Civil War Preservation Association (TCWPA) will use proceeds from the sale of the plate to interpret and preserve Tennessee’s most important and endangered battlefields. The annual specialty plate fee is $35.00 and may be purchased anytime during the registration year.


“Purchasing this plate is a wonderful opportunity to help preserve Tennessee’s endangered Civil War battlefields for our children and future generations.” said TCWPA President Joe Smyth, “Tennesseans can also commemorate and promote their rich Civil War history.”
