Clarksville, TN – The Vietnam War—America’s first “rock and roll war,” as it came to be known—had a distinct soundtrack that continues to help define it.
That’s why Ken Burns’ 2017 documentary, “The Vietnam War,” featured music by Bob Dylan and Jimi Hendrix, and why The Rolling Stones’ hit, “Paint It Black,” shows up in Stanley Kubrick’s film “Full Metal Jacket.” Even Forest Gump marched through rain and muck to the sounds of Buffalo Springfield.

Clarksville, TN – Since its debut in 2011, Theta-Delta has become another avenue for Phi Alpha Theta (PAT), Austin Peay State University’s award-winning history honor society, students to demonstrate their capacity for historical research, authorship and criticism.

Austin Peay State University to host discussion on 1866 Memphis Massacre by University of Memphis professor Dr. Beverly Bond
Clarksville, TN – The bitter fighting which defined the Civil War ended on April 9th, 1865 when Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee surrendered the last major Confederate army at Appomattox Courthouse.
But the laying down of arms and the realization of a Union victory did little to quell the fires of hatred in the newly reunited and “reconstructed” United States of America.
Clarksville, TN – Austin Peay State University’s Phi Alpha Theta (PAT) history honors society has long been among the best in the country, recently winning Best Chapter of the Year Division IV for the seventh consecutive year.
Two members of the University’s chapter were chosen to join members of 77 other PAT chapters in presenting their historical research at the society’s biennial national conference, held January 6th-10th in Orlando, FL at the Walt Disney World resort.
Austin Peay State University
Clarksville, TN – The Austin Peay State University campus isn’t simply a home for some 11,000 students. Squirrels, rabbits, birds and a few feral cats have also taken up residence in the bushes and trees surrounding the red brick, Georgian-style buildings.
They come here because of the abundance of food, water and shelter, but they stay because the campus offers these creatures a safe place to raise their young.

Clarksville, TN – Jennifer Montgomery didn’t get much sleep this past semester. Aside from the normal stresses of a graduating college senior, the Austin Peay State University history student was plagued with images of misspelled words and incorrectly used commas during many sleepless nights. When she thought about scholarly citations and the proper use of the Chicago Manual of Style, she nearly went into a panic.
That’s because Montgomery, a member of the University’s Phi Alpha Theta (PAT) history honor society, took on an enormous responsibility during her final semester at APSU. She was appointed to serve as the editor-in-chief of the first scholarly history journal in Austin Peay’s history.
Clarksville, TN – On a lazy spring afternoon in 1965, Sandra Baggett and her future husband, L.C. “Doc” Baggett, were out fishing in Houston County when they ran into the high school’s basketball coach – O.S. Uffelman.
It was an awkward encounter. L.C., after graduating high school, attended only one year of college at Austin Peay State University, before dropping out to serve in the Army. Ever since he’d returned to Houston County, Uffelman had been bugging him to go back and get his degree. That afternoon wasn’t any different.
“Mr. (Uffelman) said, ‘Doc, when are going back to school,’” Sandra recalled.
Clarksville, TN – Dr. Minoa Uffelman, assistant professor of history at Austin Peay State University, tried not to smile last week when asked if her students would put on a strong showing at the annual Phi Alpha Theta History Conference at Murray State University that weekend.
“Hopefully we’ll win something,” she said.
That was her way of being humble. The University’s PAT chapter, which Uffelman advises, was twice named as the “Best Chapter” in the country. The organization attracts some of the campus’ brightest history students, so it came as no surprise last weekend when two of its members took home the conference’s top awards.
