Scope and content: Photographs, maps and documents, collected and created by Phil Clinard in the mid-1980s concerning the Civil War battles of Nashville and Franklin and documenting Clinard's involvement in the Sons of Confederate Veterans. Originally housed in two scrapbooks, the first scrapbook contained materials relating to Civil War battles and historic sites, including numerous photographs. Many of the photographs concentrating on the battle of Nashville, taken around 1985, show the locations of trenches and redoubts, as well as sites of important battle events. Some document the loss of these sites as historic structures were destroyed or property was developed or paved over. Notable sites include the Compton house, Shy's Hill, Ft. Negley, and the Confederate redoubts. Several maps drawn by Clinard show battlefield sites within the context of 1985 surroundings. Other photographs show sites in Franklin, and at other battlefields in Tennessee including Shiloh, Dover and Ft. Donelson. The second scrapbook included information about Clinard's participation and membership in the Sons of Confederate Veterans and other Civil War heritage groups. A number of photographs show the groundbreaking ceremony at the Sons of Confederate Veterans general headquarters office in Franklin, Tenn. on Feb. 22, 1986.
