Looking Back: The Civil War in Tennessee
A legacy of Tennessee’s commemoration of the 150th anniversary of the Civil War, the “Looking Back” project brought Tennessee State Library and Archives (TSLA) teams of archivists and conservators to communities across Tennessee where they digitally copied and assisted in the preservation of privately-owned Civil War era manuscripts, artifacts and photographs.
Digital copies of these items are now part of a virtual exhibit. Today you can view many of these fascinating items online: http://www.tn.gov/tsla/cwtn
