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.

    Beautiful story

    0 5/5 TreeTx - See all my reviews This review is from: Nashville - Part One - Ready to Reach (Kindle Edition) In this story, you meet CeCe, Thomas, Holden and precious Hank Junior. Cece is determined to fulfil her dream of becoming a country singer and songwriter. Everything works against her, and she finds herself alone on a the side of the road with only Hank Junior (her dog) and her guitar case. Coming to her rescue, Thomas and Holden take care of her and their little group becomes close as they travel to Nashville.Ms. Cooper has written such a beautiful story that gives you hope.

    Outstanding read! Even if you're not "into" romance!

    What a well written novella this is! You are immediately drawn into the characters who are 3 dimensional and very realistic. So many romance novels make the good guy all good and the heroine so sweet you want to throw up, but these characters are normal people who could be your next door neighbors (well, if you lived in Georgia or Alabama :) ). I read the book from cover to cover in one sitting it was that captivating.It may not be important to everyone, but having been an English major in college, spelling, punctuation and grammar are all too important to me and I've read so many books lately that have atrocious spelling and even worse grammar! This one is perfect in those respects and I respect the author for making sure it was so before publishing it.I'm not a... 5/5 Amazon Customer "Eyespi20" (Upstate South Carolina) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    A Soundtrack That's Good - Really Good

    "Nashville" is a unique show in the pantheon of TV series, because a substantial reason for tuning in is the original music. Not only are fans getting caught up in the drama of the music business, but they are clamoring for the new songs that debut on each episode. Big Machine Records has obliged with its fourth volume of the soundtrack, and pound for pound it is the best one so far. With its usual mix of artists and a variety of different country sounds, it contains some of the second season's most irresistible songs from Connie Britton, Hayden Panettiere, Charles Esten, Clare Bowen, and supporting stars Sam Palladio, Chris Carmack, Chaley Rose, Jonathan Jackson, and Lennon & Maisy Stella.For those who are not familiar with the series, the songs occur as live performances, studio recording sessions, impromptu jamming, or songwriting sessions. There are no magical daydreamy sequences where characters randomly break into song. Even so, each musical moment is... 5/5 Marjorie S. Morris (Kansas City) - See all my reviews, May 12, 2014

    0 5/5 SJD056 (Nashville, TN) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: The Music Of Nashville Season 2 Volume 2 CD+4 BONUS 2013 TARGET EXCLUSIVE (Audio CD) As resident of the city of Nashville, I am not easily swayed by packaging and hype. I live within blocks of legendary Music Row and have just about heard it all. The Music of Nashville, all of the volumes, represent what is best about this city and our artists. Every one of the artists could have a successful career in their own right. Put them all together and you have a wonderful, eclectic CD. It's not necessary to be a fan of the show (although we are) to enjoy it. The music stands on its own. There isn't a bad track on this CD. You will find yourself turning the volume up and listening to it on repeat. It's that good, as are all the CDs. Every song is as unique and wonderful as the artists. I just put in the CD and enjoy the ride. You will too. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , June 6, 2014
