Title: Message to the General Assembly on Secession
Author : Isham G. Harris, 1818-1897
Date Created: 1860-02-28
Abstract: Governor Isham Harris sent this message to the Tennessee legislature to transmit communications from the legislatures of South Carolina and Mississippi. He does not see the necessity of a convention of slaveholding states at that time, and believes that Tennesseans are loyal to the Constitution. He goes on to say, however, that Tennesseans have a "jealous regard for the rights of the States." They will join the resistance against encoachments upon States` rights first by use of Constitutional means. If that proves impossible because of "reckless fanatics" in the Federal government, then Tennessee will follow the example of "our fathers of 1776." He concludes by stating that Tennessee`s policy should be to exhaust every means for an honorable, Constitutional solution in order to stem the tide of agreesion and restore the era of good feeling in the country.

Title: Orders for travel for George S. Bowling
Author : Isham G. Harris, 1818-1897

Abstract: Governor Isham Harris wrote travel orders for George S.

Harris authorized Bowling to take possession of the guns not in use and store them for Governor in a secure place. The back of the letter has two notes, by Colonel Ben. J. Hill and Lieutenant Colonel John Chester, detailing the weapons shortage faced by regiments in Tennessee. Hills reports that his 5th Tennessee Regiment`s guns were turned over to the government and replaced with flintlock muskets, and then left behind the confusion of the retreat from Nashville. Chester says that his 57th Regiment lost guns in the retreat from Ft. Henry to Ft. Donelson or surrendered when Ft. Donelson fell to the enemy.
