The late 19th- and early 20th-centuries were a time of joining in Tennessee. Civil war gave way to civic engagement, as thousands of benevolent societies and fraternal organizations formed and expanded across the country. Born from crisis, these community organizations became a part of the fabric of a newly reborn United States. Part of NPT's original production series The Citizenship Project.
