Grouping of three (3) State of Tennessee, Washington County, post Civil War documents, all dated 1868, signed W. G. (William G. "Parson") Brownlow (1805-1877) during his tenure as Tennessee Governor. Examination of signatures in comparison to known Brownlow signatures indicate the documents are possibly secretarial signed. The Documents pertain to reparations given to two Union Soldiers and one individual for items taken during the war including a coat for $8.00 and horses for $80.00 and $125.00. 14" H x 17 3/4" W. Note: When the Civil War ended, Brownlow (an anti-Secessionist but also a slaveholder) replaced Andrew Johnson as the governor of Tennessee. He was re-elected to that position in 1867 — an election in which men who had fought for the Confederacy were not allowed to vote. Largely because of this, Brownlow was one of Tennessee's most controversial governors. Condition: All with central fold, some toning and chips/losses to perimeter. Old metal staple holes where bound in larger book. Some toning.
