More Tennessee Newspapers Available Online through ‘Chronicling America’ Project

From the Tennessee Secretary of State:

Thanks to a recent partnership with the Library of Congress, the National Endowment for the Humanities and the University of Tennessee, dozens of Tennessee newspaper titles have been scanned, indexed, and posted on the Internet. The focus is on papers from the Civil War era. All three of the state’s grand divisions are represented, with available newspapers from towns as small as Athens and as large as Memphis. More than 60,000 pages of Tennessee newspapers dating from 1850 to 1876 are now online.

You can access the digitized newspapers via Chronicling America.

Access many more digital collections via Tennessee State Library and Archives.

Btw, Chronicling America is currently home to more than 4.8 million digitized newspaper pages.
