This video slideshow features vintage photographs of Greene Countians who were involved in the Civil War efforts, representing the Union or the Confederacy. Photos were provided to The Greeneville Sun by the Greene County Genealogical Society in Tennessee. For descriptions of individual photos in this slidehow, click PHOTO-IDS.
The Gen Society reports that some 3,500 Greene Countians fought in the Civil War and that more than 20 percent of them were killed during the War, 1861-65.
The names of nearly 800 of those local individuals who died are listed in the Genealogical Society's "ROLL OF HONOR," published in the Sun on Memorial Day 2015 (May 25).
