Stribling Brock Letter Collection

During the Second World War, there were internment camps in southern middle Tennessee that housed German prisoners of war (POW). Many of the Lawrence County locals were German immigrants and descendants. These local farmers developed strong relationships with the German prisoners, evidenced by the continual correspondence that took place between the German soldiers (after their repatriation to Germany) and the Lawrence County farmers. These letters represent a fascinating link between Tennessee and the world during one of the most significant periods of the 20th century.
