9780890293072: Divided loyalties: Fort Sanders and the Civil War in East Tennessee

The East Tennessee Historical Society presents Digby Gordon Seymour’s popular and powerful story of the Civil War in East Tennessee in a newly illustrated edition.
Divided Loyalties details the often overlooked but strategically vital East Tennessee campaign of 1863 and the climactic battle of Fort Sanders, a fierce, twenty-minute assault that secured East Tennessee for the Union and set the stage for the war’s final phase. But Divided Loyalties is also the story of East Tennessee’s “war within a war,” a conflict marked by violence, retribution, and bitterness that destroyed communities, pitted neighbor against neighbor, and tore families apart. Seymour brings these stories together in a forceful narrative based on his extensive research in both official and personal records.
