See Camp Chalmette in New Orleans (Battle of New Orleans in 1815).
On the way to Memphis see Vicksburg National Military Park (1863 siege).
On the way to Nashville see Shiloh National Military Park (1862 battle).
I must agree that you should take the side trip to Shiloh on your way from Memphis to Nashville. Shiloh is an amazing Civil War park. If you want a great scenic drive from Shiloh take HJwy 64 W/TN15 W(140 miles)to Nashville. It will take you through some beautiful areas of southern and middle Tennessee. I lived in Brentwood, TN, a few miles south of Nashville and that area is gorgeous and there is a lot to see and do. See Franklin on you way, off I-65 N.
