|State Capitol during the dedication of the Andrew Jackson statue. A crowd has gathered on the hill, the street and the roof of the Capitol building.|
The documentary was created by the staff of the Tennessee State Library and Archives. It is the first part of a project that will eventually include a virtual tour of the Capitol building and its grounds, and feature stories about the building and influential people in Tennessee history.
When completed, the entire project will be burned onto DVDs that will be distributed to schools throughout the state. The project is a result of the Tennessee General Assembly's approval of Public Chapter No. 557, sponsored by Representative Jim Coley and Senator Ken Yager.
For more information, we encourage you to read the entire press release of this story, where you will find a link to the documentary and historic images of the Capitol on our website. The documentary and information on the images used in the film are available at www.capitol.tnsos.net. Additionally, the virtual tour, mini-features, and fun stories about the Tennessee State Capitol will be available soon.
The State Library and Archives is a division of the Tennessee Department of State and Tre Hargett, Secretary of State.
