      ANNOUNCING H-TENNESSEE
      H-NET LIST ON THE HISTORY AND CULTURE OF TENNESSEE
      Sponsored by
      H-Net, Humanities & Social Sciences On-line, Michigan State University

      Tennessee's history is a vibrant one. Even before its admission as a state,
      the region had already established itself as one of great importance in the
      new nation. Through trials and tribulations like John Sevier's failed state
      of Franklin, the Cherokee's Trail of Tears, America's great Civil War, and
      the Tennessee legislature's deciding vote on the women's suffrage amendment,
      the state's history has been of continuous importance. Memphis and
      Nashville saw the movement of southern music onto the national scene.
      Henning native, Alex Haley brought the African American experience into
      millions of living rooms and the American mainstream through his own
      family's story. And the Tennessee Valley Authority became America's greatest
      social experiment. The state's political contributions have also been
      considerable with three United States presidents, and the president of the
      Republic of Texas, having called the state "home". Its importance spans the
      entire national history and includes political, social, cultural, and
      economic contributions to the American story.

      On this list, historians both academic and amateur will be available to
      answer questions and discuss topics germane to the state's history. The
      site will also post reviews of books and websites on Tennessee's history and
      culture.

      H-TENNESSEE is free and open to anyone with a serious and abiding interest
      in the history and culture of Tennessee. Like all H-Net lists,
      H-TENNESSEE is moderated to edit out material that, the editors' opinion,
      is not germane to the list, involves techn ical matters (such as
      subscription management requests), is inflammatory, or violates evolving,
      yet common, standards of Internet etiquette.

      H-TENNESSEE is edited by Mark Cheathem <mrc6@...> and Mike Bowen
      <mbowen@...>. It is advised by a board of field experts.

      Logs and more information can be found at the H-Net Web Site,
