Carters Raid: An Episode of the Civil War in East Tennessee. William Garrett Piston. Softcover, 1989, Biblio., Index, 90 pp. William Garrett Piston teaches courses in Civil War and American military history at Southwest Missouri State University in Springfield, Missouri. During the Civil War, fully two-thirds of East Tennessee’s citizens remained loyal to the Union. When their state was declared "an independent nation" and then negotiated a military alliance with the Confederate government, it was against the will of the majority of East Tennesseans. Samuel P. Carter of Elizabethton, the daring "sailor on horseback" and a naval officer, led the Yankee cavalry in a raid from Kentucky into East Tennessee—into his own backyard. Recalling the exciting story of "the first long-distance raid staged by the Union cavalry," this book chronicles a significant and often overlooked turning point in the Civil War.
