The paperback and ebook editions of “Civil War Tennesseans” are now available at https://www.amazon.com/-/e/B00HV4SSWK
This book, like my previous volumes “Civil War Virginians” and “Civil War Ohioans,” looks at 50 key people, 25 on each side, and how they had an impact on the Civil War.
Like Virginia, Tennessee was divided on the issue of secession. In Virginia that led to the creation of the state of West Virginia. In Tennessee, where many in the eastern part of the state too wanted to “secede from secession,” that division led to four years of internecine conflict and many battles.
Here is the cover of the book, and I look forward to your comments and thoughts.
