Backstory and Context
In 1903, Jackson, Tennessee, opened its first library. Jackson Free Library was funded by Jackson City Council and a matching grant of $30,000 by philanthropist Andrew Carnegie. The library was replaced but later restored in 1987. Now it is used for events and contains a Civil War Museum.
Not limited to weddings and social events, the Civil War Museum inside of the Jackson Library displays a historical time in America. Displaying the strategies of both the North and the South, the history of the war and the loss of the Confederate is exhibited. Clothing and artifacts are available for viewing at the Civil War Museum, displaying the West Tennessee history
