Join Rediscover East! for a program dedicating the "Surrender of Nashville" historical marker on Saturday, February 25th, at 2PM in the theater of the East Park Community Center, 700 Woodland Street.

The event will commemorate the 155th anniversary of the surrender of the city of Nashville to Union troops during the Civil War. The original surrender was effected by the 4th OVC and members of the Ohio Volunteer Cavalry Descendants Association will travel to Nashville for the occasion.

Rediscover East! raised funds from the East Nashville community to erect the marker through the MHC’s Historical Marker Program. “The Metro Historical Commission has erected over 150 markers in the county since 1967. We are thrilled to work with community groups like Rediscover East! to add more markers that tell the public about our storied past,” said Jessica Reeves, MHC Staff member and Historical Marker coordinator.

The original surrender location had been forgotten until recently, and surprisingly, took place to members of the 4th OVC, in the “village of Edgefield” rather than in Nashville proper. A second marker has been funded and will soon be erected on the East Bank to commemorate the arrival of the Generals that formalized the surrender two days later.

Rediscover East! was formed after the Tornado of 1998, to represent the neighborhoods of historic East Nashville.

Vodka-sriracha-garlic baked tofu. Cut up the tofu. Add the main three ingredients and a little oil. Let it soak for 4 hours. Bake 2 hours at 300°. It is big league.
