On the bicentennial of U.S. declaration of war against the British, the U.S. Daughters of 1812 dedicated a monument honoring the soldiers who marched and died on the Natchez Trace during the war.  Superintendent Cam Sholly announced that the site would be renamed the “War of 1812 Memorial Site.”  A large stone wall separates the site from the parkway and creates a contemplative space on the hilltop.  The visitor is guided by the road and a sidewalk to the crest of the hill along a section of the old trace where the monument may be viewed.
