1. William G. Brownlow, Address (N.p., [1865?]). (23 p.)

State of the State address to the Tennessee legislature on April 6, 1865, in which the governor talks about the civil affairs, the budget, suffrage, the state debt, public schools, and state institutions (e.g., the Tennessee Blind School). The governor’s message is strong on law and order (e.g., “I advise that horse-stealing, house-breaking and highway robberies be punished with death”).
