Historica Knoxville News

Based on readings from old Knoxville newspapers

Where Unionists and Confederates were neighbors, conflicts continued well past the end of the Civil War. We read three articles about one family's catastrophe.
We read excerpts of a first-person account of what is believed to be the first continuous hike from one end of what would become the Great Smoky Mountains National Park to the other.
Decades after the frontier was pushed far west of Knoxville, the new Wild West came east to visit us in a caper fit for Hollywood.
