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.

"The war being at an end,
