Front Porch to the Region's History

Geography defines East Tennessee as a land of mountains and valleys and with a history and heritage apart from the rest of the state.  The East Tennessee Historical Society recognizes this distinctiveness with programs and exhibitions uniquely tailored to the region.  The ETHS educational mission is to engage the public with the message that history is important.

This Day In East Tennessee History

  • October 26, 1864

    John C. Vaughn, who had succeeded John Hunt Morgan as a Confederate general, requested on this day in 1864, that Major General John P. Breckinridge, commander of the District of East Tennessee and Southwest Virginia, send all East Tennessee civilians confined in Confederate prisons to Bristol and place them under his control.

  • October 24, 1953

    WJHL - a Tri-Cities television station - broadcast its first program, Bonnie Lou and Buster!  The station was supposed to go on air on October 24 but did not because of antenna problems.  If it had launched as planned, it would have been the first East Tennessee station and would have beaten Knoxville's WROL (WATE).
