Really loving the NYT’s Disunion blog. Loomis probably knew who William Brownlow was, but I had never heard of him:

Fancying himself a modern Isaiah, Brownlow declared on the masthead, “Cry Aloud and Spare Not.” He wrote scathing harangues excoriating all things he despised, including, but not limited to, Presbyterians, Baptists, Catholics, Mormons, Democrats, Republicans, gamblers, drinkers, Irish immigrants, cheating husbands, African-Americans, secessionists and abolitionists.

And that man serve as the two term governor of Tennessee. They just don’t make Tennesseans like they used to.
