    About the Author

    Tommy Craig Brown is a historian and archivist in Special Collections and Archives at Auburn University.


    "Older views of the Piney Woods held that the region only half-heartedly supported secession and, once the war began, was characterized by a less than enthusiastic participation on the battlefield, as well as the home front. Brown uses a wealth of primary documentation to make the point that this region demonstrated its loyalty to the cause by, among other things, raising and equipping numerous companies, thereby showing as much enthusiasm as other parts of the state."
    --Lonnie A. Burnett, author of The Pen Makes a Good Sword: John Forsyth of the "Mobile Register" and Henry Hotze, Confederate Propagandist: Selected Essays on Revolution, Recognition, and Race

    "An outstanding contribution to Alabama history, and a long overdue chronicle of a too-often overlooked region, perhaps painting one of the most complete portraits of any region in the state during the war era."
    --Mike Bunn, author of Civil War Eufaula
