Many families had opposing views and loyalties during the Civil War. Mr. Cherry opened his home to the Union army and became headquarters for General Grant. Even during these troubled times, the Cherry home was still a place for many social events. General Grant and others were often in the Cherry home. Knowing the views and loyalties of Mrs. Cherry and her family, General Grant would take off his Union coat while in their company. Tours are available

The Tennessee Civil War Trails winds it way through the cities, towns and countryside of middle and western Tennessee. Several areas of interest include the Shiloh Civil War Battlefield in Shiloh, TN, and Cherry Mansion in Savannah, TN, which General Grant used as his headquarters.
Clifton is one of the stops on the Tennessee Civil War Trails. In December 1862, Confederate General Nathan Bedford Forrest conducted a raid in the Clifton area. Later Union forces occupied Clifton and burned the town. The current Presbyterian Church was used by the Union Army as a hospital and escaped devastation. The front of the church still bears the scars of where Union soldiers pulled out part of the brick wall to enlarge the front opening. One can still see where the cannonballs hit the church.
