Troubled Times in Tennessee is a detailed look at various lost or hidden aspects of Tennessee history.
Historians of the Volunteer State’s past have overlooked the stories in these chapters while paying more attention to political, biographical, economic, and war-time history. The chapters in this book deal with topics such as the control of prostitution, drug abuse, disputes between newspaper editors, dueling, moonshining, criminals, and lynching.
Troubled Times in Tennessee offers a glimpse at heretofore unheralded historical stories in the Volunteer State’s past and unparalleled coverage of some topics once considered taboo.
