Wilson County Landfill Winter Hours (October-March) Winter Hours
From 1941 to 1944, the U.S. Army conducted seven large-scale maneuvers across Middle Tennessee in 21 counties, including Wilson. Cumberland University, in Lebanon, served as the Army’s headquarters.
850,000 soldiers took part in the simulated combat operations that prepared them for the D-Day invasion and to push back the German forces. These massive maneuvers took place on the hills, the hollows and along the rivers of Middle Tennessee.
Our soldiers made history because such massive exercises had never been conducted. Military leaders agree, the skills learned and refined here played a significant role in the Allied Forces victory.
The soldiers, landowners and observers deserve to have their stories preserved. The Tennessee Maneuvers Experience is going to do just that with an engaging program now in the development.
The Tennessee Maneuvers Experience will retrace these epic events in an immersive, educational presentation utilizing stage sets, lighting, and audio/visual technologies for a captivating experience in a theater configuration. In this show, stage performance and documentary film are merged to bring a program that is both historically accurate and entertaining.
Our story is born from first person accounts that transport us 75 years into our past. Audiences will hear, see and experience the reactions of a typical, rural Tennessee family when their lives are forever changed as the events of WWI and the maneuvers unfold around them.
The Friends of Wilson County Veterans Museum, a 501 (c) (3) corporation, is undertaking this as its first project. Join us for our fund-raising event and see a 15-minute preview of work in production in the making of The Tennessee Maneuvers Experience. The dollars raised will allow us to complete the presentation and purchase the video and sound equipment. Once a venue is chosen, we will offer the presentation to school students and to the public as a tourist attraction for Wilson County.
