William Gannaway Brownlow was an American politician during the reconstruction era most known for his book ‘Sketches of the Rise, Progress & Decline of Secession.’ Even though he supported slavery, Brownlow, according to Larned, opposed secession and was imprisoned by the Confederacy for refusing to take an oath of allegiance to the southern government. Larned continues,

“this volume is a reprint of some of his editorials, correspondence, speeches, and experiences during the eventful life in the South. It was written after Brownlow was transported beyond the norther lines and was lecturing in the northern cities. The book is intensely bitter in tone and interestingly chiefly from the author’s personality.”

 

According to Nevins,

“Fascinating experiences of an avowed biased Tennessee Unionist; revealing on conditions in East Tennessee during the first two years of the war.”
