Trials, Triumphs, and Transformations: Tennesseans’ Search for Citizenship, Community, and Opportunity

Newly updated, with a renewed focus on citizenship, this digital collection emphasizes the impact of federal and state government programs as Tennessee moved into the modern era. The rise of industry during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries is also featured. The Web site, which includes interactive Teaching with Primary Sources–MTSU lesson plans for six primary themes, also explores professionalization during the era of Jim Crow segregation and highlights the accomplishments of ethnic minority populations. A number of new partners have shared exciting resources as the collection continues to expand, including the Robertson County Archives, Fort Campbell’s Don F. Pratt Memorial Museum, and the Knoxville Museum of Art. Administration and support of the digital collection is an ongoing partnership between the Center for Historic Preservation, the Tennessee Civil War National Heritage Area, and the James E. Walker Library at MTSU, with initial funding from the Tennessee Board of Regents Office of Academic Affairs.
