A study of the Civil War would be incomplete without a close-up view of Tennessee. Battles were fought here on many famous battlefields -- Shiloh, Chattanooga, Missionary Ridge, Fort Donelson, Murfreesboro, Nashville, Chickamauga. Battles were also fought on smaller fronts, as families and communities were divided between those loyal to the Union and those loyal to the South. Tennessee on Both Sides of the Civil War is an excerpt from the 1887 book: History of Tennessee, originally published by Goodspeed Publishing Co. This NEW spiral-bound 150-page booklet was printed on 8.5" x 11" 60# paper at our printing plant in Tucson, AZ. The front cover is protected by a vinyl sheet. The booklet is divided into two sections: Federal Military History and Confederate Military History. Maps of many battles are included, along with histories of various units, some of which include names of officers. Here's a sample from the beginning of the book: No fact connected with the late civil war, abounding in striking events and gigantic achievements, is more remarkable than the number of troops furnished by Tennessee to the Federal Army. It is scarcely credible that a State with a voting population of only about 140,000, raising nearly 100,000 troops for the Confererate Army, should also have furnished 30,000 men to fight for the Union...
