Title: Governor Brownlow Offers $5000 Reward for ex-Governor Isham Harris
Author : William Gannaway Brownlow, 1805-1877
Witness : Andrew J Fletcher
Date Created: 1865-05-03
Abstract: Governor Brownlow wrote this letter offering a $5000 reward for ex-Governor Isham G. Harris, according to the requirements of Resolution XXXIV, a joint resolution of the State Senate and House passed during the first session of 1865. "Parson" Brownlow strongly denounces Harris in a diatribe designed more to stir feeling than to present facts, calling Harris an "Arch-Traitor" who was the "Chief Instrument" for thrusting Tennessee into the Civil War. Further accusations against Harris include "prelusive orgies that profaned our Churches" and falsely pretending to the Governor of Tennessee and collecting revenue while "swept along by the unparalleled hurricane of licentiousness and furious tempest of anarchy." Brownlow offers a detailed physical description of Harris with statements such as "His complexion is sallow -- his eyes are dark and penetrating -- a perfect index to the heart of a traitor -- with the scowl and frown of a demon resting upon his brow." Brownlow also notes that Harris chews tobacco rapidly and is "inordinately fond of liquor," in addition to being lost to all sense of honor in "personal and political profligacy." A newspaper clipping containing the Joint Resolution XXXIV is taped to the final page of the letter.
