Tennessee State Seal
State Archivists to Visit Dover in Search of Civil War Memorabilia
(Published: August 2, 2011)

Representatives from the Tennessee State Library and Archives and the Tennessee State Museum will be in Dover Aug. 16 to record and digitize Civil War memorabilia owned by local residents for a new exhibit.

Archivists will be at the Stewart County Visitors Center, 117 Visitors Center Lane in Dover, from 10:30 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. During that time, 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) 253-3458 or e-mail civilwar.tsla@tn.gov to schedule a reservation with the archivists. Reservation forms and available times may be found on the State Library and A
