Summary
When it was acquired by the Center for American History at the University of Texas at Austin in 1986, the Natchez Trace Collection was one of the great unexplored treasures of southern history. Its plantation records, bank correspondence, songbooks, and family letters, among many other gems, combine to form a cornucopia of regional history. Now seven noted southern historians act as guides through this still largely untapped resource. Each examines one facet of the collection, covering such topics as slavery, women's roles, the Old Southwest, Jacksonian politics, sectional conflict, and the position of businessmen and entrepreneurs in the antebellum period. The Natchez Trace, also known as the "Old Natchez Trace", is a historic forest trail within the United States which extends roughly 440 miles (710 km) from Nashville, Tennessee, to Natchez, Mississippi, linking the Cumberland, Tennessee, and Mississippi rivers
