As the short-lived Capital of Confederate Kentucky, Bowling Green was a strategic post during the Civil War. This driving tour takes visitors to attractions, landmarks, historic markers, cemeteries, and other sites related to this time in our city's past.

A detailed brochure with accompanying map is available at the Convention & Visitors Bureau or at some of our brochure racks around town. If you prefer a digital dashboard, follow the link above to visit our Civil War microsite where you can access more information, the full tour with descriptions, directions, and even listen along to tracks from the accompanying audio tour.
