Sister States, Enemy States: The Civil War in Kentucky and Tennessee

Synopsis

Kentucky and Tennessee were mirror images of one another during the Civil War. Both were slave states with large numbers of Union and Confederate sympathizers. Kentuckians and Tennesseans suffered the same hardships as the armies waged war in their homeland. Bound to each other and to the South by their common culture, economy, and values, the people of these two states found themselves on opposing sides at the most critical time in American history. In Sister States, Enemy States,many distinguished historians examine the social, political, and economic impact of the war on the people of both states, including disenfranchised groups such as women, refugees, and African Americans. A significant addition to the study of the Civil War in the Bluegrass and Volunteer states,Sister States, Enemy Statespromises to find a wide audience among scholars and general readers alike.
