COLUMBIA, Tenn. (AP) -- The Natchez Trace Parkway and its partners will present a commemoration of the War of 1812 on Saturday and Sunday near Columbia, Tenn.
The old Natchez Trace was a vital travel route for Gen. Andrew Jackson and his troops throughout the war and is where he received the nickname "Old Hickory."
Organizers say more than 150 living history re-enactors will participate. Activities will include military drills, demonstrations of historical weapons and presentations by War of 1812 experts.
