Nashville, An American Self Portrait

Creator: John Egerton, E. Thomas Wood | 2005-06-30

Nashville: An American Self Portrait captures the essence of the city at a pivotal time in its history.

Publisher: Beaten Biscuit Press

About this book
Nashville: An American Self Portrait captures the essence of the city at a pivotal time in its history. The year 2000 was a period of signal events: a presidential primary season with two Nashvillians seeking the nomination; a fall run for the White House that Democrat Al Gore won at the ballot box yet lost in the electoral college; the 75th anniversary of the Grand Ole Opry; a farewell crusade by the Reverend Billy Graham; the 22nd decennial census of the nation's (and Nashville's) population, revealing a striking new profile of the city; a dramatic shift from home-owned to outsider-owned financial and commercial institutions; the near-collapse of the state's lawmaking authority in the final years of the old century, and the contrasting rise of Metro government in the same decade; and a stunning Super Bowl season for the brand new, Nashville-based Tennessee Titans. Created by more than 100 Nashvillians and others with a connection to the city-writers, editors, photographers, and artists-Nashville brings into sharp focus the principal players and episodes of modern politics, religion, economics, and popular culture in this quaint and thriving pocket of the American heartland.

Nashville, the western Confederacy's final gamble

Creator: James L. McDonough | History - 2004-11-12

Schofield, Hood, and others. Within the pages of Nashville, McDonough's subjects, both common soldiers and officers, present their unforgettable stories in their own words.

Publisher: Univ Tennessee Press

About this book
After Major General William Tecumseh Sherman's forces ravaged Atlanta in 1864, Ulysses S. Grant urged him to complete the primary mission Grant had given him: to destroy the Confederate army in Georgia. Attempting to draw the Union army north, General John Bell Hood's Confederate forces focused their attacks on Sherman's supply line, the railroad from Chattanooga, and then moved across north Alabama and into Tennessee. As Sherman initially followed Hood's men to protect the railroad, Hood hoped to lure the Union forces out of the lower South and, perhaps more important, to recapture the long-occupied city of Nashville. Though Hood managed to cut communication between Sherman and George H. Thomas's Union forces by placing his troops across the railroads south of the city, Hood's men were spread over a wide area and much of the Confederate cavalry was in Murfreesboro. Hood's army was ultimately routed. Union forces pursued the Confederate troops for ten days until they recrossed the Tennessee River. The decimated Army of Tennessee (now numbering only about 15,000) retreated into northern Alabama and eventually Mississippi. Hood requested to be relieved of his command. Less than four months later, the war was over. Written in a lively and engaging style, Nashville presents new interpretations of the critical issues of the battle. James Lee McDonough sheds light on how the Union army stole past the Confederate forces at Spring Hill and their subsequent clash, which left six Confederate generals dead. He offers insightful analysis of John Bell Hood's overconfidence in his position and of the leadership and decision-making skills of principal players such as Sherman, George Henry Thomas, JohnM. Schofield, Hood, and others. Within the pages of Nashville, McDonough's subjects, both common soldiers and officers, present their unforgettable stories in their own words. Unlike most earlier studies of the battle of Nashville, McDonough's account examines the contributions of black Union regiments and gives a detailed account of the battle itself as well as its place in the overall military campaign. It will become the definitive treatment of a crucial battle-ground of the Civil War.

About this book
Like many Southern cities, Nashville has undergone a dramatic transformation over the past two centuries, evolving from a simplepioneering crossroads into a large cosmopolitan center with its citizens representing every nationality, race, and creed. The latter years of the nineteenth century proved especially momentous in the city's growth and development, and two visionary Nashvillians, Carl and Otto Giers, documented the many different elements of city life through their photographic talent.In Nashville: From the Collection of Carl and Otto Giers Volume II, readers will journey to the Nashville of old and see the city through the artistry of the Giers' studio: a time when the city hosted some of the most recognizable and celebrated Confederate and Union officers, such as Nathan Bedford Forrest and Ulysses S. Grant, who both sat for studio portraits. Enduring the ravages of the Civil War, Nashville rebuilt itself and the Giers were there to record its rebirth, photographing everyday life against many different settings: from the city's graveyards, such as Calvary, Mount Olivet, and National Cemetery, to its poverty-stricken neighborhoods, to the elegant homes of the affluent, to the flourishing business district. Not just concerned with the routine, the Giers focused on capturing Nashville's history in the making, including portraits of state governors, such as William Gannaway Brownlow, Albert Smith Marks, and Robert Love Taylor, scenes of the Tennessee Centennial Exposition and the Tennessee Industrial Exposition, and the city's most-famous attractions, Belmont and the Hermitage.

    I'm no country fan but I love this pilot

    0 5/5 JustLookAtTheFlowers (Florida) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Nashville Season 1 (Amazon Instant Video) First off, I am not a fan of country music so when I first heard about this show, I quickly dismissed it. However, when I saw a trailer I realized I needed to check it out. Rayna is a strong, independent, and very likable female lead and Connie Britton plays her so well. Hayden Panatierre's character on the surface seems like a real b****, but you find out early on that she's actually a very damaged girl with a bad family life. The production value is great and it's cool to get a glimpse at what goes on behind the scenes at the record company, backstage at concerts, and in the bars of Nashville. The show is more than just country music. There is also a politics side story, which is just as compelling as the music plot. I'll definitely keep watching this one. Also, the music is good. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , October 6, 2012

    0 5/5 Amber (Washington DC) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Nashville Season 1 (Amazon Instant Video) Makes Country Music relatable to everyone by focusing on the ups and downs of all kinds of artists and the people in their support systems. The 2 female leads are perfectly cast and bring depth and richness to their roles. Love the show and was surprised by how good it was. It hooks you fast even if you never listened to much country music and you will end up enjoying the music too. Hope this goes several seasons. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , May 5, 2013

This review is from: Nashville: Season 3 (DVD) I LOVE THIS SHOW and have watched the first two seasons again over the summer. I am giving Season 3 just 4 stars because there are NO EXTRAS! I thought they would at least include On The Record 2 but at first glance it does not appear to be included. i'm bummed! Bloopers? Music videos? Gotta be SOMETHING they could have tacked on . . . 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , September 2, 2015

    Great show, but the DVD set is pretty bare bones

    +++Warning...this will contain spoilers from prior seasons, but no major giveaways from season 3. If you have not seen the prior seasons proceed with caution+++The third season of Nashville very much keeps the prime time soap opera feel that the show has had. The focus is, of course still on the various relationships between the various characters, romantic and otherwise.The Rayna, Deacon Jeff Wheeler triangle continues throughout the season, and is, to some extent resolved. But the season finale ends on a major cliffhanger (again) involving Deacon and Rayna.Will is still struggling with his sexuality, keeping up appearances with his fake marriage to Layla which sends her into a tailspin, which makes for one of the very good ancillary story lines of the season. Will's story line is really about how it is becoming harder and harder to keep the secret.Hayden Panettiere's role was a bit reduced this season because of her real life... 4/5 Mike S.

    0 5/5 Gma23boys (Georgia) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Nashville Season 3 (Amazon Instant Video) The 2nd best show on TV!!! (NCIS is #1) I love Nashville....it reminds me of the old days when Dallas was on. The actors are great and it amazes me that they do their own singing. You can't go wrong with watching this show. I hope ABC realizes what a "hit" they have and keeps it going for many seasons to come. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , February 20, 2015

    Best show on tv

    0 5/5 Amazon Customer (Honolulu, Hawaii USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Nashville Season 3 (Amazon Instant Video) Season three offers a richness to the main character arcs that keeps the tension at fever pitch. The writer(s) know how to add on details that make the story sound real- the loneliness of life on the road, the constant compromises and fickle nature of fame, the never ending shifts in alliances and enemies, it all rings true. So, watching this is not merely a voyeuristic exercise in celebulation, the honesty of the storyline makes it a primer in how human beings survive in show biz conditions. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , October 24, 2014

    The drama is good the music is great

    0 5/5 Amazon Customer - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Nashville Season 3 (Amazon Instant Video) At the beginning of the season I was growing disappointed with the lack of new and the usual awesome music that goes with this show. Now that we are well into the season I am getting excited to over-listen to the season soundtrack as it has steadily grown and improved. I am not normally one who relistens to music in a day or week without being forced by a radio station. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , February 20, 2015
