Handwritten state constitutions moved for display

Print | Front Page | Email this story

NASHVILLE (AP) — Three versions of the original handwritten Tennessee Constitution are being carefully moved to the Tennessee Supreme Court building this week in preparation for their upcoming public display.

The documents will be removed on Tuesday from a vault at the State Library and Archives building and carried by hand in archival boxes to the Supreme Court building. They will be escorted by a detail from the Tennessee Highway Patrol.

This is the first time that all three documents — handwritten in 1796, 1834 and 1870 — will be on display together. The public can view the original constitutions from Thursday through Monday.
