About Us

TMCA History

The TMCA was formed in 1976 by interested collectors in the Middle Tennessee area. The organization has two shows in Nashville every year. Dealers come from across the United States and as far away as Germany and England.

TMCA members are hobbyists who collect, trade, and sell historical militaria and memorabilia. Their interests cover a wide field representing every war and nation involved with the United States from the Civil War through Desert Storm. No political ideology is espoused.

Benefits of Membership
As a member of the TMCA, you are entitled to free admission at the two militaria shows each year and discounts on display and sale tables at these shows. Additionally, only TMCA members and exhibitors are allowed attendance on Friday morning during set up and the first hours of our militaria shows, thus getting first choice on many collectibles.

Meetings and sharing information with other fellow collectors at our shows and at monthly meetings held in Nashville is also a membership plus. You can nominate and vote for TMCA officers, which are elected for two year terms. Finally, you will be kept up to date on all forthcoming club activities through our newsletters.
