"A new exhibition, 'Of Pen and Sword,' at the Museum of East Tennessee History through October 13, 2013, recounts pivotal moments in the region's Civil War history through a series of rare and important artifacts and documents, many on public display for the first time. Key events emphasized include the reaction of East Tennesseans to Lincoln's call for troops after the Fort Sumter attack, the divisions that developed as the region's citizens chose sides, the reaction of Unionists to living in a Confederate state, the occupation of the region first by Confederates and then by Union forces, the military experience and emancipation of blacks, Andrew Johnson as military governor, and the rise of East Tennesseans to political power after the war."
