Tenn. archivists search for Civil War memorabilia

Posted: Updated:
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee archivists are looking for Civil War memorabilia.

Representatives from the Tennessee State Library and Archives and the Tennessee State Museum will be in Franklin Nov. 13 and  Nov.14 to record and digitize Civil War memorabilia owned by local residents for an exhibit titled "Looking Back: The Civil War in Tennessee."

On those days, archivists invite area residents to bring in original photographs, documents and other artifacts related to the Civil War.

They will scan or take digital photographs of the materials, some of which will be featured in the exhibit, located online at www.tncivilwar150.org.

For more information or to make a reservation with an archivist, call (615) 741-1883 or email civilwar.tslatn.gov.

    The department also said in a letter to lawmakers that its record of messages sent to and from the agent, Peter Strzok, was incomplete because the FBI, for technical reasons, had been unable to preserve and retrieve about five months' worth of communications.
