NASHVILLE (AP) — A new web application shows where hundreds of Civil War activities occurred in Tennessee.

A news release from the Tennessee Department of State says the Tennessee Civil War Geographic System Survey is the first of its kind in the country.

The web site allows modern aerial photography, street maps and land use maps to be overlaid onto sites where Civil War actions occurred. It also links narrative information about these events from the Tennessee Civil War Sourcebook.

Accounts of all state units that served in the war are searchable by county along with 1860 United States census data.

The application is at http://tnmap.tn.gov/civilwar/.
