Along the way you’ll see the Historic Court Square, Fourth Bluff Park overlooking the Mississippi River, and a couple locations significant to the Civil War, including the sites of the Battle of Memphis and Forrest's Raid. Walk through Cotton Row and a gain a new perspective from a rooftop over the city.
