Civil War History
Greene County is rich in Civil War history and is thought to be one of the only towns in America that have both Union and Confederate memorials in its courthouse square. Although Greene County was predominantly Unionist, the town changed hands many times and was considered one of the most divided states in the war. Greeneville is known for the pro-union meeting held at the Greeneville Convention in 1861, the Battle of Blue Springs that occurred in 1863, and the death of Confederate Calvary Commander General John Hunt Morgan in 1864.
