UT’s Center for the Study of War and Society and our History Department have been awarded a contract as part of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs’ new Veterans Legacy Program. This program pairs local universities and local school systems to produce education materials and public outreach programs about local National Cemeteries, telling the individual stories of veterans and their service.
To read more about the history of the Knoxville National Cemetery please follow this link to the Knoxville History Project’s brief introduction to the cemetery written by Jack Neely with corresponding images edited by Paul James.
