The Lost State of Franklin: America's First Secession

Kevin T. Barksdale

After the Revolutionary War, many bubbling social tensions led to political unrest.  Against this backdrop of turmoil, the backcountry leaders of the Tennessee Valley tried to establish Franklin as the fourteenth state.  The author researched primary source materials to rediscover the history of this lost state and the far-reaching consequences for America.  2009, 283 pages, soft cover.
