New site offers Civil War data for TennesseeBreaking News
The sourcebook chronicles the military, economic, social and political history associated with the Civil War in Tennessee. Information in the sourcebook comes from diaries, period newspapers, official Civil War records, ship deck logs, letters and historical articles. The sourcebook compiles more than 7,000 entries into an easy-to-access documentary collection and provides narration.
Work on the Tennessee Civil War Sourcebook began in 1995, when Tennessee Historical Commission Public Historian James B. Jones Jr. noticed discrepancies in different publications regarding the number of battles that took place in Tennessee during the Civil War and the authors' failure to provide documentation as to the numbers presented. Since that time, Jones has conducted a historical audit to collect and more thoroughly document information about combat and other aspects of the Civil War in Tennessee from a variety of sources.
