Author Sam Davis Elliott talked about his book, Isham G. Harris of Tennessee: Confederate Governor and United States Senator, in which he profiles one of the most prominent Tennesseans in the Confederacy and a dominating participant in nineteenth-century Tennessee politics. Harris served as Governor of Tennessee from 1857 to 1862, and as a U.S. Senator from 1877 until his death. An important figure in the state’s history, Harris was regarded by his contemporaries as the person most responsible for leading Tennessee out of the Union and aligning it with the Confederacy during the Civil War.
