From the Civil War, Exposition and the great fire of 1916, Historic Photos of Nashville follows life, government, education, and disasters throughout Nashville's history. The book captures unique and rare scenes and events through the original lens of hundreds of historic photographs. Published in striking duo tone these images communicate historic events and everyday life of two centuries of people building a unique and prosperous city.
