The skirmishes surrounding the weeks-long siege of Knoxville, including the Battle of Campbell’s Station, along Kingston Pike in what’s now Farragut,  probably saw some similar scenes, with or without intrepid young women watching closely. Re-enactor groups the 79th N.Y. Tennessee, a local Union-renactor group based here, provided the bluecoats. The 63rd Tennessee is a local group of Confederate re-enactors who depicted Longstreet’s men.
