TENNESSEE CIVIL WAR GIS PROJECT

Depending on your point of view, Andrew Johnson, local Tennessee patriot, 1861

I know this has nothing whatsoever to do with the Washington County Regiment but this resource is too good not to tell you about.  I read about this in another blog called PAST IN THE PRESENT (  http://pastinthepresent.wordpress.com/2011/06/16/mapping-the-civil-war-in-tennessee/   )and was fascinated. This was created by  the Tennessee State  Library and Archives and if you are interested in history, you need to check it out.  You can select any engagement  or if you don’t know the names, select a county and get battle  locations on a modern-day aerial, street, or terrain map, along with primary source material; instantly access unit histories relevant to each county; see the locations of historic markers across the state and more. It’s an unbelievable historical resource and I only hope they do it for Revolutionary times as well.

      Darned if I know as the legislature is seriously considering slashing funds allotted to the State Archives. I’ll look into it , though , as I think this is a very important service.
