November 1861

Thrilling adventures of Daniel Ellis, the great Union guide of east ...:

"Being a citizen of Carter County I united with the company which had been selected to burn the bridge over the Holston River at the town of Union in Sullivan County, Tennessee.

Between Elizabethton And Johnson City

The bridge over the Watauga River at Carter Depot, six miles from Elizabethton, Tennessee, escaped destruction owing to the fact that a company of rebel soldiers were stationed there."
