Do you have Civil War era artifacts? Bring them to the Museum Center to have your items digitally copied and preserved by the Tennessee State Library and Archives.

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 we will digitally copy and assist in the preservation of your Civil War era manuscripts, artifacts and photographs.

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.

For more information, email Lisa Chastain at or call 423-339-5745.
