Austin Peay State University’s Woodward Library receives donation of table built from remains of Port Royal covered bridge

 

Austin Peay State University - APSU - logoClarksville, TN – For nearly a century, the Port Royal covered bridge stood as more than just a literal bridge that allowed passage over the Cumberland River’s Red River stream. Until its destruction in 1998, it served as a bridge between generations of Montgomery County residents.

Over the decades, the Burr Truss bridge overlooked children at play, private weddings and countless family gatherings.

On display at Austin Peay State University’s Woodward Library is a table made from salvaged material from the old Port Royal covered bridge. The table was created by Larry Ellis and Kenny Bishop, two APSU alums, in 1971. Also on the table are sculptures of founder of the Dewey Decimal system, Melvil Dewey (left) and author Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (right). (Scott Summate, APSU)

The Freed Slaves of Montgomery County

 

Clarksville Tennessee HistoryClarksville, TN – Every human being has worth and deserves dignity. “Everyone matters” is an incredibly powerful humanitarian ideal, and one upon which the United States seems to continually both build and define. We hear the whispers of this ideal within the words of the Declaration of Independence.

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

The generation of Americans which fought to free us from the tyranny of Europe in the late 18th Century probably could not have grasped how these words, and the spirit of the ideal they reflect would be used by subsequent generations to form the nation we live within today.
