TSLA (Tennessee State Library and Archives) to Catalog Items
For 150 Year Anniversary Program
LOOKING BACK: The Civil War in TENNESSEE
Thursday, June 6
Every Tennessean has a story. Share yours.
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.
Archivists from the Tennessee State Library and Archives (TSLA in Nashville) will be in FAYETTE COUNTY, TN at the SOMERVILLE-FAYETTE COUNTY LIBRARY on JUNE 6, 2013, from 3PM to 7PM to archive items Fayette Countians have from the War Between the States (Civil War) era.
State employees will take your information on your item(s), scan or photograph them to include in the 150-year anniversary program of LOOKING BACK: The Civil War in TENNESSEE (see TSLA website: http://www.tennessee.gov/tsla/cwtn/). All items are returned that day to those that brought them.
The Somerville-Fayette County Library is located one block from the Somerville Square at 216 West Market Street. For directions, contact the library at 901-465-5248. This is a wonderful opportunity to document our Tennessee heritage!
