The Battle of Triune Reenactment Ran from 2013 until 2016
This event was coordinated by Time Capsule Ministries / Alan Corry Event Coordinator 
and was Hosted at Kings' Chapel / Arrington, TN from 2013-16.  Currently we are not coordinating a battle reenactment at Kings' Chapel in 2017, but look for future events by Time Capsule Ministries.  We are working to expand to others locations as we plan and coordinate authentic Civil War reenactments that represent the Fight for Middle Tennessee during the years 1862-64.  These events involve local reenacting groups in the leadership planning and are designed to be historically accurate, educational and entertaining for all those who attend.

Brief History of the actual Battle of Triune:

Triune was a thriving area of Middle Tennessee prior to the Civil War and was occupied

by Federal troops in January 1863.  There was a battle on Dec 27, 1862 as Confederate

brigades under General Braxton Bragg encountered Federal troops on their way to

Murfreesboro for what would be the Battle of Stones River a few days later.  After Confederate

forces were defeated at Triune, the Federal Army occupied the area and erected fortifications. 

Between April and June 1863 there were several cavalry skirmishes lead by

General Bedford Forrest.  The local people resisted Federal occupation and many

were detained.  Many of the area homes and churches were destroyed by fires

during these military actions of 1863.

 

Today:

Triune is an unincorporated town that has gas stations/convenience stores
and a saddle/gun shop (that sells black power for cannons).  Today, in the 
local area, there are still sections of the Federal trenches on private property.
