The Civil War Walking Tour is located in the Old Decatur and New Albany Historic Districts, just off the southern bank of the Tennessee River near downtown Decatur. Covering thirteen blocks, the self-guided walking tour chronicles events surrounding Confederate General John Bell Hood’s attempted advance across the Tennessee River, a four-day battle that took place in October of 1864.

The tour also showcases the largest concentration of Victorian-era cottages and bungalows in Alabama. The Civil War Walking tour, part of the national Civil War Discovery Trail, begins at the Old State Bank Building (925 Bank Street NE).
