Hiking through History

Civil War Sites on the Appalachian Trail

Civil War & Underground Railroad Sites on the Appalachian Trail.

Leanna Joyner

Leanna Joyner, who hiked the length of the Appalachian Trail in 2003, brought experience in publications and marketing to the Appalachian Trail Conservancy, where today she manages volunteer-based crew and other trail programs in Georgia, North Carolina, and Tennessee. As a consultant, she developed community-based programs for the ATC and researched this guide to Civil War sites along a footpath perhaps more legendary for hiking exploits than history.
