Sinopsis: This comprehensive exploration of the Celtic-American McGavocks and their beautiful Franklin, Tennessee, home is a ?must read? for anyone interested in not only Carnton Plantation, but in the American Civil War, the South, and Tennessee history. In ?The McGavocks of Carnton Plantation,? Southern historian, former Carnton docent, McGavock relation, and award-winning Tennessee author Lochlainn Seabrook digs deep into the history of the McGavocks, providing facts, material, and topics that you will not find in any other book or on any historical tour. Included in this monumental 1,050-page work is a detailed history of Carnton Plantation and her occupants from 1700 to the present; a ?you-are-there? tour of the grounds and the mansion, top to bottom, interior and exterior; an in-depth discussion of Lincoln?s War, slavery, the Confederate States of America, and the Battles of Franklin II and Nashville, as the McGavocks and other loyal Confederates saw them; a complete McGavock family tree from their earliest known ancestor in Scotland; a complete Winder family tree from their earliest known ancestor in England; a royal European McGavock family tree back to Robert the Bruce King of Scotland; a brief history of Company H Twentieth Tennessee Infantry; well-researched citations with 1,700 footnotes, a 1,000-book bibliography, and an exhaustive index. The book also contains hundreds of illustrations, maps, photos, diagrams, and drawings, all chronicling the lives, customs, and beliefs of this fascinating Confederate clan. The longest and most detailed book ever written on the McGavocks, most of this material has never been published before, and Mr. Seabrook?s insights into the Southern (as opposed to the Northern) perspective of the War for Southern Independence will provide readers with a new and illuminating view of Nineteenth-Century life at Carnton. Penned from the traditional South?s point of view and written with a love for Dixie, reverence for the Confederacy, and respect for the McGavocks, this massive and important Civil War Sesquicentennial study is a one-of-a-kind book that is sure to become a classic. Seven years in the making, it is one that every true Southerner, every lover of liberty, and every student of history will want in their library. Introduction is by Dr. Michael R. Bradley, Chaplain SCV Camp #155, and award-winning author of ?Tullahoma: The 1863 Campaign for the Control of Middle Tennessee.? Foreword is by Sue A. Thompson, Master Curator and Decorative Arts Director, Lotz House Museum, Franklin, Tennessee. Lochlainn Seabrook is the winner of the prestigious Jefferson Davis Historical Gold Medal, awarded by the United Daughters of the Confederacy. Known as the ?American Robert Graves? after his celebrated English cousin, Seabrook is a seventh-generation Kentuckian of Appalachian heritage, the sixth great-grandson of the Earl of Oxford, and the author of over thirty popular adult and children?s books, including ?Carnton Plantation Ghost Stories?; ?Everything You Were Taught About the Civil War is Wrong, Ask a Southerner!?; ?The Quotable Robert E. Lee?; ?The Quotable Jefferson Davis?; ?The Unquotable Abraham Lincoln?; ?Nathan Bedford Forrest: Southern Hero, American Patriot?; ?A Rebel Born: A Defense of Nathan Bedford Forrest?; ?Lincolnology: The Real Abraham Lincoln Revealed in His Own Words?; and ?The Caudills: An Etymological, Ethnological, and Genealogical Study.?
