NASHVILLE (AP) — State commissions have announced more than $115,000 in grants for four projects related to war history in Tennessee.

The Tennessee Wars Commission and Tennessee Historical Commission says the grants are intended to protect and interpret "Tennessee's historic military sites ranging from the French and Indian War through the American Civil War era."

Officials said a $50,000 grant will help the Battle of Franklin Trust with displays for the Carter House State Historic Site Visitors Center. A $48,800 grant was awarded to Parkers Crossroads Battlefield for a replica Civil War artillery caisson and interpretive signage.

About $1,800 will help fund interpretive panels and supplies at Alvin C York State Historic Park. And, a $15,000 grant will fund replica Civil War-era artillery equipment at Johnsonville State Historic Park.
