Celebrating a Tennessee Triumph: New monument to honor Clarksville’s suffragists

August 16, 2019

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – On a July afternoon in 1914, more than 75 people crowded into a house on Madison Street for a meeting of the newly established Clarksville Equal Suffrage League.

Austin Peay State University history students put on strong showing at regional history conference

April 14, 2018

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – The Vietnam War—America’s first “rock and roll war,” as it came to be known—had a distinct soundtrack that continues to help define it.

That’s why Ken Burns’ 2017 documentary, “The Vietnam War,” featured music by Bob Dylan and Jimi Hendrix, and why The Rolling Stones’ hit, “Paint It Black,” shows up in Stanley Kubrick’s film “Full Metal Jacket.” Even Forest Gump marched through rain and muck to the sounds of Buffalo Springfield.

Austin Peay State University history professor Minoa Uffelman part of team to restore Civil War-era diary

February 28, 2017

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – Military conflicts are not fought in isolation, and the American Civil War was no different. While civilians like Serepta Jordan never lifted a musket, Jordan and millions like her felt its impact, and it is precisely that neglected perspective that made the discovery of her diary by area historians so significant.

A working-class woman living in Clarksville during the war, Jordan was not a name remembered by history.
