Gadsden Flag
TN Specialty License Plate 


Thank you for your interest in the TN Gadsden specialty license plate.  The license plates are now available at your TN County Clerk's office.  Personalized license plates can be ordered through your TN County Clerk's office.  And, motorcycle license plates will be available at the beginning of May 2017.

A portion of the proceeds from the tag (roughly $15 per plate) will benefit the non-profit group Friends of Sycamore Shoals State Historic Park which runs historical and educational programs all year, every year, and helps with park upkeep. The park hosts "Liberty! The Saga of Sycamore Shoals", the Official Outdoor Drama of Tennessee, as well as the annual Native American Festival, a Revolutionary War Era Militia and Fife & Drums Corps, an historical museum, and many educational activities and programs. Such activities and programs include interpretive guides for the State Park and Carter Mansion; traditional arts workshops (e.g, flint knapping, leather working, spinning); monthly musters where re-enactors portray 18th century life on the frontier; etc.

We encourage you to click on the above page links, explore their contents, and/or 'like' us on Facebook to stay up to date on our activities, and to please VISIT our park!

Fellow Tennesseans, you have helped bring this plate to reality, and will thus also help tremendously with the preservation and promotion of our State’s history and its contribution to founding the United States of America!
