Summary "Intended for wide distribution, broadsides were traditionally used as a tool to disseminate information. Printed on large sheets of paper and sometimes rich in illustration, broadsides were posted on buildings or handed out to the general population. These ephemera were often produced in mass quantities to advertise, promote or announce official proclamations, public meetings, and entertainment events. Originally designed to have an immediate impact on the observer, broadsides were created for disposable and temporary use. A medium that made its debut as transitory marketing material a few centuries ago remains a durable form of communication to the masses even today. Broadsides continue to be produced in large quantities in order to disseminate information to the public. The broadsides showcased in this collection were chosen for their historical significance, the subject matter exhibited, the era represented, and/or their connection to Tennessee." -- website
