Tennessee digitizing 1 million pages of historical newspapers

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The Tennessee State Library and Archives is adding more than 1 million newspaper pages to its free online collection.

The newly added historical newspapers from Greeneville, Jonesborough, Memphis, Sweetwater and Winchester date from the 1850s to almost 1900.

The joint Chronicling America project with the University of Tennessee had previously digitized more than 120,000 pages of newspapers from the Civil War era, including 40 titles ranging from cities like Knoxville and Memphis to smaller towns such as Bolivar, Fayetteville and Loudon.

The Chronicling America website is hosted by the Library of Congress and displays images of entire newspapers along with an online index.
