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. 42 items total. Condition: Most documents legible. Some documents with stains and tears.
