From 1941 to 1944, more than 850,000 soldiers trained for combat across most of Middle Tennessee. These exercises, known as the Second Army Tennessee Maneuvers, involved very realistic war games conducted literally in the back yards of civilians. These were among the largest and most complex maneuvers ever held by the U.S. Army.The Warren County Genealogical Association will hold a Tennessee Maneuvers seminar and book signing on Saturday, May 19, in the Magnolia Room at the Warren County Administrative building located at 201 Locust Street in McMinnville.The seminar is free to the public and will feature a display of more than 100 World War II artifacts.
