NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP/WMOT) – Abraham Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation will be traveling to Tennessee in 2013.
The document, signed by President Lincoln in 1863, will be on display at the Tennessee State Museum for just six days. It’s all part of Tennessee’s commemoration of the 150th anniversary of the American Civil War.
Confederate apologists often note that Lincoln’s proclamation only freed slaves in the Confederacy. State Museum Chief Curator Dan Pomeroy says Lincoln actually had few other options.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Middle Tennessee can expect another difficult La Nina winter.
The National Weather Service outlook for December through February calls for warmer than normal temperatures, but wetter than usual conditions.
Nashville forecaster Bobby Boyd says that means more ice than usual.
"We may be looking at some icy conditions, perhaps a freezing rain or two. That doesn't mean we won't have any snow. We certainly will I'm sure, but I think we're going to be a little bit closer to more icy conditions at times."
MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- A study outlining a new gene therapy treatment for Hemophilia, developed at Saint Jude’s in Memphis, appears in this month’s issue of the New England Journal of Medicine.
In a news release, St. Jude’s says the findings of a six-person study mark the first proof that gene therapy can reduce bleeding episodes for those suffering from the inherited blood disorder. Four of the six participants have reportedly had no bleeding episodes since undergoing the new therapy.
