U.S. Grant Trail


The Confluence Segment of the U.S. Grant Trail is a joint project of communities in Missouri and Kentucky to showcase Civil War sites and other heritage sites that chronicle the life and times of America's eighteenth president. From Hannibal, Missouri to Paducah, Kentucky, these are the communities and sites that witnessed Ulysses Grant's rise to fame in 1861. The U.S. Grant Trail passes through Paducah, citing Nathan Bedford Forrest's Headquarters, the Tilghman House and Civil War Museum, the William Clark Market House Museum, Grant's Landing Site and Fort Anderson Park as stops along the trail.

We encourage travelers to call ahead and visit websites to confirm plans as local attractions have announced temporary closures in response to COVID-19. Reference our COVID-19 resource page for updated local information!
