Chronicles of the Cumberland Settlements
Paul Clements, author

For more than ten years, local writer Paul Clements has researched the frontier history of Middle Tennessee, accumulating all known first hand accounts of settlement from 1779-1796. The result is this wonderful new resource, almost 800 pages long. Join us to learn new revelations about the founders of our state – as John Haywood wrote in 1823, “Ought not their exploits be rescued from the obliteration of time, and the tomb of silence?” Paul Clements has answered this call.

Looking Back: The Civil War in Tennessee
Myers Brown, Tennessee State Library & Archives

To commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Civil War (2011-2015), the TSLA is sending teams of archivists and conservators to communities across Tennessee. TSLA staff make digital copies of manuscripts, artifacts, and photographs. These copies, 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. Myers Brown will report on the project and some of the more intriguing finds.
