Civil War Flags of Tennessee provides information on all known Confederate and Union flags of the state and showcases the Civil War flag collection of the Tennessee State Museum. This volume is organized into three parts. Part 1 includes interpretive essays by scholars such as Greg Biggs, Robert B. Bradley, Howard Michael Madaus, and Fonda Ghiardi Thomsen that address how flags were used in the Civil War, their general history, their makers, and preservation issues, among other themes. Part 2 is a catalogue of Tennessee Confederate flags. Part 3 is a catalogue of Tennessee Union flags. The catalogues present a collection of some 200 identified, extant Civil War flags and another 300 flags that are known through secondary and archival sources, all of which are exhaustively documented. Appendices follow the two catalogue sections and include detailed information on several Confederate and Union flags associated with the states of Mississippi, North Carolina, and Indiana that are also contained in the Tennessee State Museum collection. Complete with nearly 300 color illustrations and meticulous notes on textiles and preservation efforts, this volume is much more than an encyclopedic log of Tennessee-related Civil War flags. Stephen Cox and his team also weave the history behind the flags throughout the catalogues, including the stories of the women who stitched them, the regiments that bore them, and the soldiers and bearers who served under them and carried them. Civil War Flags of Tennessee is an eloquent hybrid between guidebook and chronicle, and the scholar, the Civil War enthusiast, and the general reader will all enjoy what can be found in its pages. Unprecedented in its variety and depth, Cox's work fills an important historiographical void within the greater context of the American Civil War. This text demonstrates the importance of Tennessee state heritage and the value of public history, reminding readers that each generation has the honor and responsibility of learning from and preserving the history that has shaped us all--and in doing so, honoring the lives of the soldiers and civilians who sacrificed and persevered.

Tennessee's Cumberland Plateau played host to some of the most dramatic military maneuvering of the Civil War. As Federal forces sought to capitalize on the capture of Nashville, they moved into a region split by the most vicious guerrilla warfare outside Missouri. The bitter conflict affected thousands of ordinary men and women struggling to survive in the face of a remorseless war of attrition, and its legacy continues to be felt today.

When the East Tennessee and Virginia Railway line was completed in 1858, dignitaries gathered in celebration as the final spike was hammered into the last tie in Greene County. When the Civil War began, the line became a vital link in transporting Confederate troops and supplies from the deeper South into Virginia. The railroad was vulnerable, however, and inevitably the stage was set. On a cold Friday night, November 8, 1861, the Unionists proceeded with plans to burn the key railroad bridges of East Tennessee, but the promised Federal invasion did not come. From a bold plan approved by President Abraham Lincoln through the tragedy described in the aftermath, the incredible true story of an insurrection gone wrong is detailed in this thoroughly researched narrative.

Eighteen-year-old Sumner A. Cunningham joined his local home guard near Shelbyville, Tennessee, in late October 1861, and immediately was assimilated into a new Confederate regiment, the 41st Tennessee Infantry. Rising to senior noncommissioned-officer rank, his experiences were those of the Army of Tennessee through the next three years. He received limited military training, was captured at Fort Donelson, and spent time as a prisoner of war in Camp Morton, Indiana. After his exchange, he marched in the failed Mississippi campaign to free Vicksburg, saw action around Jackson and Raymond, at Port Hudson, Chickamauga, Missionary Ridge, and the Atlanta and Tennessee campaigns. There, he fought with bravado at Franklin and Nashville before he deserted. Reminiscences of the 41st Tennessee: The Civil War in the West is based on his wartime diary, which he published in 1871 for his middle Tennessee market. Cunningham's military account is a refreshingly candid examination of his daily life in the Army of Tennessee. From combat and heroism to fear, cowardice, and disease, his is an unusually honest insight into the Confederacy in the West.
