The attackers, he wrote, “scalped my daughter Rebecca. I hope she still will recover.”

August 19, 2014

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – On a cold night in February 1862, the moans and whimpers of injured Confederate soldiers filled the streets of Clarksville.

Hospitals had been set up in local buildings to treat the wounded, following the Battle of Fort Donelson in nearby Dover, and whispered rumors claimed the Union army was heading for the city.

Historian to discuss new view of Andrew Jackson at APSU on April 9th

March 26, 2014

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – Many Americans view Andrew Jackson as a frontiersman who fought duels, killed Indians and stole another man’s wife. Historians have traditionally presented Jackson as a man who struggled to overcome obstacles and helped create a more democratic United States.

In his compelling new biography of Jackson published by LSU Press, historian Mark R. Cheathem argues for a reassessment of these long-held views, suggesting that in fact “Old Hickory” lived as an elite Southern gentleman.

February 14, 2014

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – In the early 20th century, Tennessee ranked sixth in the nation in lynchings, with mobs murdering some 214 people during a 40-year span.

APSU’s Minoa Uffelman contributes to new book on progressive Tennessee women

October 7, 2013

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – In a cemetery in Gallatin, Tennessee, Virginia P. Moore’s headstone reads, “One of the First Five Home Demonstration Agents in the World.”

The inscription, at first, doesn’t sound too glamorous. In the early 20th century, home demonstration agents traveled to rural communities, teaching farmwomen skills such as how to can and preserve vegetables. Moore did this in Tennessee, visiting impoverished areas to organize tomato and canning clubs in the days before 4-H.
