Tenn. archivists search for Civil War memorabilia

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Tennessee archivists are looking for Civil War memorabilia.

Representatives from the Tennessee State Library and Archives and the Tennessee State Museum will be in Franklin Nov. 13 and Nov.14 to record and digitize Civil War memorabilia owned by local residents for an exhibit titled “Looking Back: The Civil War in Tennessee.”

On those days, archivists invite area residents to bring in original photographs, documents and other artifacts related to the Civil War.

They will scan or take digital photographs of the materials, some of which will be featured in the exhibit, located online at www.tncivilwar150.org.
