I'm hoping this is the right place to put this. My parents are planning a visit to Tennessee in April and my mom was hoping for some recommendations or tips on Civil War (or other historical, they like it all) sites to visit. She's a great trip planner, so I'm hoping for specific advice like "go to this particular Ranger talk" or off the beaten track/non-military history and heritage ideas, rather than simply "Shiloh! Lookout Mountain!" On previous trips to larger battlefields (Gettysburg, Antietam) we have hired personal guides for more in depth tours, I would guess that they would not be opposed to doing that again.

They'll be driving from Madison, WI - I think the general plan is to drive to the Chattanooga area, then head west before going north again. They are excellent hikers, although mom is not the best with precarious heights.

Thanks in advance!

If you like house museums there are 2 in Franklin that were apart of the battle in Franklin.  I loved them, but house museums are my favorite. IIRC Franklin is about an hour away from chattanooga.   (really good aquarium in chattanooga)
