So how should one review a memoir written by a great-great-grandfather and edited for publication by a great uncle? This book is unlikely to draw wide interest outside of the family - perhaps it will be a useful raw resource for historians studying east Tennessee during the Civil War and Reconstruction; it may also be of interest to cultural historians of religion in the American South; or aficionados of memoirs from the period. Among his descendants, the Rev. Thomas Hooke McCallie, 1837 - 1912, the 'THM' of the title, has a legendary status, but until now, his short memoir, written between 1901 and 1912, has been available only in a much redacted version published in a local newspaper in 1938 and through hard-to-read photocopies of the original handwritten copy. As edited by one of THM's grandsons, this printed version benefits from a great deal of additional material that provides context and parallel perspectives on the events and people mentioned in the memoir without altering or distorting the original text. It is certain to be a treasure within the family, and perhaps a respectable curiosity anywhere else. ( )

Thomas Hooke McCallie wrote a memoir in 1902 reporting for the benefit of his children what he knew of his family's immigration to the New World. The editor for this memoir is Dr, David McCallie of Chattanooga who is a grandson of THM. ( )
