        I would like to suggest another book: "With Blood and Fire" by Dr. Michael R. Bradley. This book is based on microfilms of original documents in the Tennessee Archives from during the Yankee occupation of  South Central Tennessee. It describes the importance of the train track from Nashville, TN to Stevenson AL for suppling troops and supplies to the siege of Chattanooga. 

        On the subject of divided support for the CSA and the USA.  The Paint Rock River divides into two tributaries (Larkin Fork and Estille Fork) just north of Princeton.  Most folks on the Larkin Fork were rebels and many served in the Confederate army.  Estille Fork was mostly loyalist and even formed one of the companies of the Alabama Vidette Calvery.
