Local author Dr. Elizbeth Taylor plans a meet and greet as well as a book signing to celebrate Veteran’s Day. She’s written two books about Camp Forrest, the former military installation in Tullahoma.
From Camp Forrest in nearby Tullahoma to the Manhattan Project in Oak Ridge, Tennessee played a crucial role in WW II and a new Library of Congress grant will help MTSU preserve more of that history.
It once included 1,300 buildings, 55 miles of roads, five miles of railroad tracks, and existed as a self-sustaining city of over 70,000 soldiers and another 12,000 civilians. And it’s the subject of the Tullahoma Art Center’s March exhibit.
Dr. Elizabeth Taylor’s newest book examines the legacy of Camp Forrest that still remains to day.
