War at Every Door: Partisan Politics and Guerrilla Violence in East Tennessee, 1860-1869

By Noel C. Fisher | Go to book overview

ACKNOWLEDGMENTS

A great many people contributed to this work in some way, and I am grateful and humbled to remember them. Professor Allan Millett first pointed me to this project, directed it through a dissertation, and made numerous suggestions that greatly increased my understanding of the partisan war. Professor Joan Cashin shared with me her considerable knowledge of Southern history, critiqued my writing style, and provided valuable advice on a great many things. Professor Stephen V. Ash, Dr. B. Franklin Cooling, Professor Peter Maslowski, and the two readers at the University of North Carolina Press all reviewed this manuscript with great care, provided countless useful suggestions, and helped transform a dissertation into a book.

Many people made the research for this project both fruitful and enjoyable. The staffs of the Tennessee State Library and Archives, the University of Tennessee Library Special Collections, the Mc- Clung Collection, the Southern Historical Collection, the Manuscript Division of the William R. Perkins Library at Duke University, the National Archives, the Manuscript Division of the Library of Congress, the North Carolina State Archives, and the Federal Records Center in Atlanta were all knowledgeable, friendly, and efficient. Ms. Ruth Sloan of the Grandview Heights Public Library went beyond the call of duty in locating a number of sources for me, and the Alumni Research Fund of the Graduate School at the Ohio State University provided funding for much of the research. Dr. Carl Beamer made his extensive Civil War library available to me. And Barb and Jerry Ryan made my stay in Durham, North Carolina, unforgettably pleasant.

My deepest thanks are reserved for my wife, Angela, who traveled with me, participated in the research, supported my work, and lived with this project for many years. Her patience and long suffering are remarkable.
