Tennessee State Seal
State Archivists to Visit Hohenwald in Search of Civil War Memorabilia
(Published: April 11, 2011)

Representatives from the Tennessee State Library and Archives and the Tennessee State Museum will be in Hohenwald April 21 to record and digitize Civil War memorabilia owned by local residents for a new exhibit.

Archivists will be at the Lewis County Public Library, 15 Kyle Avenue in Hohenwald, from 10:30 a.m. until 2 p.m. that day. During those times, they invite area residents to bring in photographs, documents and other artifacts related to the Civil War.

The archivists will scan or take digital photographs of the materials, some of which will be featured in an upcoming exhibit titled, “Looking Back: The Civil War in Tennessee.” The archivists will not actually take possession of the items from their owners.

Individuals may call (615) 253-3470 or e-mail civilwar.tsla@tn.gov to schedule a reservation with the archivists. Reservation forms and available times
