About the Project
Using records, maps and photographs from the Vanderbilt Special Collections and other historic Nashville collections, this Buchanan Library Fellowship created a series of Storymaps projects: interactive, GIS-based visual tools that combine information on many individual locations into a single visual product, telling the exciting stories of Civil War Nashville. The projects map the fortifications of Nashville or the hospitals of Civil War Nashville. Mapped locations were matched with information from photos, stories, period maps and articles. Fellows assisted with historical research and worked with faculty to compile and organize available photos, articles and maps of important locations within Civil War Nashville. Fellows also helped to build Storymaps using ArcGIS software and convert data into file formats amenable to ArcGIS.
