Hi there, I’m Maggie MacLean, author of the Northeast Tennessee Civil War blog. I’m just getting started after months of research and trying to find the perfect theme, which is not easy for a history blog.
I’m not a historian, nor do I write like one. I am an avid reader and researcher of Civil War history since childhood. I have a more casual style of writing, and I will try to explain situations that are not always clear in the history books. I came to prefer a timeline format for this blog because it forces me to write concise entries without a lot of interpretation.
For the purposes of this blog, I will be writing about the 18 counties of Northeast Tennessee: Anderson, Blount, Campbell, Carter, Claiborne, Cocke, Grainger, Greene, Hancock, Hawkins, Jefferson, Johnson, Knox, Scott, Sevier, Sullivan, Union, and Washington.
If you see errors on this blog or have something to say, please leave a comment.
FYI, I have an autoimmune disease, which makes writing a perfect activity for me.
If you have even half as much fun reading this blog as I am having writing it, Google should send me lots of traffic.
