The Bible in which President Andrew Jackson’s family recorded household births, marriages, and deaths for more than half a century now belongs to the University of Tennessee Libraries. Jackson’s family Bible was purchased with monies from University Libraries endowments and donations from members of The Library Society of the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.
This important historical document could be of great use to our university researchers looking into Jackson’s lineage.
Join the University Libraries in celebrating this important acquisition at a reception and viewing of the Jackson family Bible on Tuesday, September 16, at 5:00 p.m. at UT’s McClung Museum of Natural History and Culture. Brief remarks will be offered at 5:30. Please RSVP to Megan Venable (email@example.com or 865-974-6903).
