Hi Larry,

Rather surprised that Nashville Union Newspaper was pro Union news, or that they even had the name “Union” in the paper’s name? Anyone have percentages on who this part of Tennessee favored?

Thanks,
MD

M.D.,
I believe Nashville was under Union occupation most of the war, beginning in early 1862.
Best Regards,
Greg
