The Hidden History of McMinn County Tales from Eastern Tennessee

Joe Guy

Amid the serenity of McMinn County, in southeast Tennessee, lies a history that has long lain hidden in old newspaper stories, county records and the memories of McMinn's most venerable citizens.

The Hidden History of McMinn County is the first-ever collection of articles from the popular regional newspaper column of historian Joe Guy. Here for the first time are little-known tales from a rich heritage that few now remember: the first railroad, the oldest depot, the last public hanging, a countywide election day revolution and shootout that drew national attention, buildings made of bricks that still bear the handprints of slaves, a famous mountain hermit and a court case that doomed an entire Indian nation. Sit back, explore and enjoy the fascinating Hidden History of McMinn County. 126 pages.
