The tenth book in my series, “Civil War Personalities, 50 At a Time,” namely, CIVIL WAR TENNESSEANS, will be published very soon via amazon.com
Like my books, Civil War Ohioans and Civil War Virginians, this volume focuses on 50 key men and women from that state, 25 on each side, who emerged during the Civil War as leaders in many directions. The fact that Tennessee was divided on the issues of secession and Union led inevitably to divisions within its populace. The term “internecine warfare” was never more apt during the Civil War than in Tennessee. There was even a serious movement by eastern Tennessee to secede from its secessionist brethren in central and western Tennessee!
Below is a photo of the cover of the book. Pictured on the cover are nine of the people in the book, from top left, Admiral David Farragut; President Andrew Johnson; Union Guerrilla leader Tinker Dave Beaty; Governor and Senator “Parson” Brownlow; the Tennessee state flag; Confederate General/Episcopal Bishop Leonidas P0lk; Confederate General Nathan Bedford Forrest; the statue commemorating the U.S. Colored Troops which was unveiled in October, 2021; and Carrie McGavock, the “Widow of the South.”
