Title

That D----d Brownlow: Being a Saucy and Malicious Description of William Gannaway Brownlow


Description

A collection of writings by methodist clergyman ardent unionist, and editor of the Tennessee Whig, Parson Brownlow.

Abstract

Published in 1978, this book is the story of William G. Brownlow, a Methodist minister, Whig politician, journalist, Civil War best seller, and an anti-Confederate who illustrated in his writings the trials and tribulations of the mountaineers in east Tennessee who sided with the Union. Brownlow, a native Appalachian, was the first writer to treat the mountains as a significant and separate area. Due to the vibrant character of Brownlow and distinct style of writing, this publication is a narrative of the Whig. A weekly newspaper edited and published for thirty years by Brownlow, both William Barlow and Steve Humphrey have made limited changes to the Whig to allow Brownlow’s original thoughts and opinions be heard.
