A.A. Taylor Report on Pensions for East Tennesseans, circa 1891

 File — Box: 1, Folder: 1
From the Collection:

This three-page leaflet presents the text from Alfred A. Taylor's report to the 51st U.S. House of Representatives, to accompany H.R. 13424. It calls for pensions to be provided for the survivors and widows of the group who successfully burned bridges around Knoxville in November of 1861. To justify this request, Taylor recounted the plans and results of that event and then referred to H.R. 7051 that had established pensions for men who had failed in their attempt to burn bridges around Chattanooga.
