Summary

"The Hidden History of McMinn County" is the first-ever collection of articles from the popular regional newspaper column of historian Joe Guy. Here for the first time are little-known tales from a rich heritage that few now remember: the first railroad, the oldest depot, the last public hanging, a countywide election day revolution and shootout that drew national attention, buildings made of bricks that still bear the handprints of slaves, a famous mountain hermit and a court case that doomed an entire Indian nation.Sit back, explore and enjoy the fascinating "Hidden History of McMinn County,"
