NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee archivists will be hitting the road to search for Civil War memorabilia for a digital exhibit commemorating the 150th anniversary of the Civil War.

Staff members from the Tennessee State Library and Archives are looking for Civil War manuscripts, artifacts and photographs to be digitally copied and preserved.

The project, called "Looking Back: The Civil War in Tennessee," is similar to an effort during the 1980s when staff members visited courthouse squares with a mobile photo lab to copy historically significant photographs.
