The McGavocks of Carnton Plantation : A Southern History
by Lochlainn Seabrook




Overview -

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 Colonel 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 Colonel Seabrook's insights into the Southern (as opposed to the Northern) perspective of the Great War of 1861 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 already becoming an American classic. Seven years in the making, The McGavocks of Carnton Plantation is one that every true Southerner, every lover of liberty, and every student of history will want in their library. The Introduction is by Dr. Michael R. Bradley, Chaplain SCV Camp #155 and award-winning author. The Foreword is by Sue A. Thompson, Master Curator and Decorative Arts Director, Lotz House Museum, Franklin, Tennessee.

World-acclaimed Civil War scholar Lochlainn Seabrook, a descendant of the families of Alexander H. Stephens and John S. Mosby, is the most prolific and well respected pro-South writer in America today. The leading popularizer of Civil War history, he is a recipient of the prestigious Jefferson Davis Historical Gold Medal and the author of over 50 books that have introduced hundreds of thousands to the truth about the War for Southern Independence. Known as the "new Shelby Foote," Colonel Seabrook is a seventh-generation Kentuckian of Appalachian heritage and the sixth great-grandson of the Earl of Oxford. He has a forty-year background in American and Southern history, and is the author of the international blockbuster Everything You Were Taught About the Civil War is Wrong, Ask a Southerner

His other titles include: Abraham Lincoln Was a Liberal, Jefferson Davis Was a Conservative; Lincoln's War: The Real Cause, the Real Winner, the Real Loser; All We Ask is to be Let Alone: The Southern Secession Fact Book; The Ultimate Civil War Quiz Book; The Great Yankee Coverup; Confederacy 101; Slavery 101; Confederate Flag Facts; Lincoln's War; Women in Gray: A Tribute to the Ladies Who Supported the Southern Confederacy.
