“Volunteer County of the Volunteer State”

Check out this editorial on Unionist volunteers from Campbell County, TN. ¬†Campbell Co. is just down the road from yours truly, and like the rest of East Tennessee, it was an anti-secession stronghold during the Civil War. ¬†The editorial links the mountaineers’ patriotism with that of their Revolutionary ancestors, a comparison made by prominent Unionists in the 1800’s.
