DESCRIPTION This comprehensive exploration of the Celtic-American McGavocks and their beautiful Franklin, Tennessee, home is a “must read” for anyone interested in not only Carnton Plantation, but in the American Civil War, the South, and Tennessee history. In The McGavocks of Carnton Plantation, award-winning author, Southern historian, former Carnton docent, and McGavock relation Colonel Lochlainn Seabrook digs deep into the history of the McGavocks, providing facts, material, and topics that you will not find in any other book or hear on any historical tour. Included in this monumental work is a detailed history of Carnton Plantation and her occupants from 1700 to the present; a “you-are-there” tour of the grounds and the mansion, top to bottom, interior and exterior; an in-depth discussion of Lincoln’s War, slavery, the Confederate States of America, and the Battles of Franklin II and Nashville, as the McGavocks and other loyal Confederates saw them; a complete McGavock family tree from their earliest known ancestor in Scotland; a complete Winder family tree from their earliest known ancestor in England; a royal European McGavock family tree back to Robert the Bruce King of Scotland; a brief history of Company H Twentieth Tennessee Infantry; well-researched citations with 1,700 footnotes, a 1,000-book bibliography, and an exhaustive index. The McGavocks of Carnton Plantation also contains hundreds of images, maps, photos, diagrams, and drawings, all chronicling the lives, customs, and beliefs of this fascinating Confederate clan. The longest and most detailed book ever written on the McGavocks, a majority of this material has never been published before, and Col. Seabrook’s insights into the South’s (as opposed to the North’s) perspective of the War for Southern Independence will provide readers with a new and illuminating view of Nineteenth-Century life at Carnton. Penned from the traditional South’s point of view and written with a love for Dixie, reverence for the Confederacy, and respect for the McGavocks, this massive and important Civil War Sesquicentennial study is a one-of-a-kind book that is well on its way to becoming a Southern classic. Seven years in the making, The McGavocks of Carnton Plantation is one that every true Southerner, every lover of liberty, and every student of history will want in their library. The Introduction is by Dr. Michael R. Bradley, Chaplain SCV Camp #155 and award-winning author. The Foreword is by Sue A. Thompson, Master Curator and Decorative Arts Director, Lotz House Museum, Franklin, Tennessee. Available in paperback and hardcover.
