A rollicking potpourri of true stories, biographies and historic images that run the gamut of Tipton County history, from early settlement to the present day—and from the ring of the pioneer's axe to the soul music of Isaac Hayes. Located just north of the bustling metropolis of Memphis, Tipton County, Tennessee, has its own rich history, full of interesting people and events. Historian and author Gaylon Beasley presents favorite and little-known stories of Civil War heroes, Hollywood starlets and both the serious and lighter sides of Tipton life, all in this fascinating and historic collection.
