Chattanooga Chronicles by Cody Maxwell

Chattanooga's history is as storied and complex as any southern city that was born in the early days of America and came of age during the Civil War, but not every southern city has a writer like Cody Maxwell. Join local journalist Maxwell for a look back at some of the most enthralling, if overlooked, chapters in Chattanooga's history. This engaging collection features the legends and tall tales, small triumphs and muted tragedies, characters, criminals and folk heroes that shaped the city's past. From the folk tale of Nickajack Cave and the devastation of the Great Flood to the changing history of the Patten Towers and more, Maxwell draws an honest and engaging path through the forgotten stories that underlie the thriving and growing Chattanooga of today.
