Chronicling America Update

Another batch of Tennessee newspapers has been added to Chronicling America. This batch includes Bolivar Bulletin 1882-1889; Camden Chronicle 1895-1903; Lawrence Democrat 1906-1913; Morristown Gazette 1879-1884; Sequachee News and Sequachee Valley News 1895-1909.

There will be two more batches under TNDP’s current NEH award. Earlier this year we applied for a third (and final) award to continue digitizing Tennessee’s historical newspapers. We will hear in July if our application was successful.
