James Jones is a public historian for the Tennessee Historical Commission and State Historic Preservation Office. He began collecting little known and unknown historic narratives "one entry at a time" at the library during his lunch hours. As his database grew, so did his appetite for the curious and colorful events that comprise Tennessee's past. Before he knew it, a full-length book emerged and the rest of us can benefit from over four years of his "lunch time" research. Maintaining the calendar form, Every Day In Tennessee History features multiple entries on each day in the calendar year, generously illustrated with archival photographs. While many of the entries deal with famous personalities and events, the majority found their way into the collection because they were not famous or well-known, including Ida B. Wells' account of her first baseball game, the nuptials of Elvis and Priscilla Presley, the completion of a hydroelectric dam, the closing of a red-light district, and hundreds more diverse and fascinating historical "tidbits". -- Midwest Book Review
