Patriot Paths

Patriot Paths Map

Patriot Paths is a work in progress that uses Revolutionary War pension records to map the paths that soldiers took before and after their service. Staff and interns at the Library & Archives have pored over pension files to find the dates and places where the soldiers were born, married, enlisted and died. About 2,000 pension files exist for soldiers who came to Tennessee and about 1,200 have been entered so far. Historians and genealogists can use the tools to search for veterans and study the patterns of migration.
