BIBLIOGRAPIIV.-For a general physical description of the state see the Reports of the Tennessee Geological Survey (Nashville, 1840) and E. C. Hewett, Geography of Tennessee (no place, 1878). On administration see L. S. Merriam, Higher Education in Tennessee, in Circulars of Information of the United States Bureau of Education, No. 5 (Washington, 1893), and J. W. Caldwell, Studies in the Constitutional History of Tennessee (Cincinnati, 1895; new ed., 1907). There is no satisfactory complete history of the state. The best is James Phelan's History of Tennessee (Boston, 1888). For the early period see John Haywood, Civil and Political History (Knoxville, 1823, reprinted Nashville, 1891); J. G. M. Ramsey. Annals (Charleston, 1853): A. W. Putnam, History of Middle Tennessee, or Life and Times of General JamesRobertson (Nashville, 1859) ; Theodore Roosevelt, Winning of the West (New York, 1889–1896); John Carr, Early Times in Middle Tennessee (Nashville, 1857). For the more recent period see O. P. Temple, East Tennessee and the Civil War (Cincinnati., 1899) ; James W. Fertig, Secession and Reconstruction of Tennessee (Chicago, 1898) ; and the Report of Joint-Committee on Reconstruction (U.S. Pub. Does., Wash., 1866).
