Overview

Some men seek fame; others simply rise to the occasion. Daniel Ellis did not aspire to be a hero, but the role thrust upon him during the Civil War was ac-cepted as a service to his country and the flag he so dearly loved. Like the majority of his neighbors in Carter County, Ellis was a staunch Lincolnite, but sentiment in the area was divided. Forced to flee for his life after he took part in burning a bridge, Ellis joined a group of Union men already in hiding and anxiously awaiting arrival of the Federal Army. After several months passed with no sign of "the Yankees," Ellis determined to go through the rebel lines, and on Au-gust 1,1862, he set out on his first trip. Thus began the unbelievable saga of one man's performance in taking more than 4000 men through Confederate lines and into the Federal Army. This edition includes an index compiled by Allen Ellis (a descendant), with the 212 names marked to denote whether Union or Confederate.

    a man of humanity

    Mr.Ellis piloted Union men from north east Tennessee to Kentucky which were the federal lines,because they were being murdered and tortured,their wives and children had everything stolen from them including their food ,the clothing off their backs and had their homes burned to the ground.sometimes they even murdered the children.They were left to wander the cold mountains in Tennessee until they died of exposure and starvation.Mr. Ellis took their husbands through the confederate lines and returned with money and letters for their families who were still alive.He was the bravest, most humane man that I have ever read about.
