To commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Civil War (2011-2015), the Tennessee State Library and Archives is sending teams of archivists and conservators to communities across Tennessee. Individuals may schedule an appointment, and the team will digitally copy and assist in the preservation of your Civil War era manuscripts, artifacts and photographs. All this is done without the items leaving your possession. Digital copies of these items, representing the rich Civil War heritage of Tennessee families, will become part of a virtual exhibit commemorating the 150th anniversary of the war in Tennessee. The Everett Horn Public Library will be hosting a digitization event on August 27, 2010. More details will follow in the next two weeks. In the meantime, be gathering the items that you would like to have scanned.
