Welcome to WTCW!

Explore the site and join the community as we examine the most important theater of the war-where it was won and lost.

We will be updating our events page for 2024. The Symposium on the Field at Perryville will return for its third year, along with opportunities to explore Kentucky cavalry actions and follow the armies in Tennessee.

We are very excited to announce the WTCW podcast, The Department No. 2 Podcast! Find the show on YouTube and wherever you listen to your favorite podcasts!
