Side 1:

Tannehill Furnaces began as a small forge in 1830. During the War Between the States (1861-1865)
these furnaces were a major supplier of iron and munitions for the Confederacy. When
partially destroyed by Union troops on March 31, 1865, they were producing more than
20 tons of pig iron daily for the arsenal at Selma.

This marker is dedicated to the valiant men and women who served the Confederacy in this area.

Placed by the Alabama Division
United Daughters of The Confederacy.
Mrs. John H. Curry, President.
