Official Tennessee Civil War
Sesquicentennial License Plate
Help Preserve Tennessee’s Civil War Battlefields!
The Tennessee Civil War 150th license plate is now available at County Clerks’ offices across the state.
The Civil War 150th Battlefield preservation plate includes the official Tennessee Sesquicentennial logo. The Tennessee Civil War Preservation Association (TCWPA) will use proceeds from the sale of the plate to interpret and preserve Tennessee’s most important and endangered battlefields. The annual specialty plate fee is $35.00 and may be purchased anytime during the registration year.
“Purchasing this plate is a wonderful opportunity to help preserve Tennessee’s endangered Civil War battlefields for our children and future generations.” said TCWPA President Joe Smyth, “Tennesseans can also commemorate and promote their rich Civil War history.”
AS OF OCTOBER 1, 2014 THERE ARE 1376 PLATES ON THE ROAD!
For those who pre-ordered the plate – the first 1000:
Since September, 2013, nearly all of the first 1000 (pre-orders) have been picked up and are on the road. If you were one of the first 1000 and haven’t picked up your plate, please check with your county clerk’s office. While after 1 year the clerks are no longer required to hold your plate, many do, so give them a call. You don’t have to wait until your tag expires! Your plate fee is PAID – whether your paid the fee earlier or got a “free” plate – so you will only pay your county’s normal registration fees (prorated for any unused portion).
For those of you who have your plate and are ready to renew your Battlefield Preservation Plate:
Please renew your plate! We appreciate your support for battlefield preservation!
When you go to renew: When you renew your plate you will pay your county’s regular registration fee or fees, plus $35.00 specialty plate fee. For example, if your county charges $25.00 annual registration fee, your total fee will be $$60.00. If you’re renewing a personalized specialty plate, your fee will include your regular registration fee or fees plus $70.00.
