Mapping the Civil War in Tennessee: A Spatial Humanities Initiative
Authors: Zada Law
To commemorate the 150th anniversary of America's Civil War, Tennessee created the first online, interactive geospatial database of Civil War military site locations. The map links locations of military engagements to battle descriptions, regimental histories, historic maps, diaries, and photographs. Map layers include aerial photos and street maps, 1860 county boundaries, 1865 railroads, and Civil War Trail markers. Uses of the data include education, interpretation and preservation planning.
