Hopefully those of you that attended this years LBL200 Dual Sport event got to visit some nearby Civil War historical sites. This area, including nearby Dover and Clarksville, TN had breastworks and cannon emplacements along the shoreline to keep northern gunboats and warships from floating on down the Cumberland to Nashville, TN. There are civil war cemeteries, a great museum @ Ft. Donelson, the surrender house, and three forts; Fort Donelson, Fort Henry, the little known Fort Heiman (on the opposite shoreline) and the under-restoration Fort Defiance location in Clarksville, TN. Check out the historical significance of this land you rode on via the Internet. It should also be mentioned that you can read how Kentucky Lake and Lake Barkley were formed and the TVA's involvement on the Internet. Interesting reading for those dualsport history buffs like DeBandi and myself included.
