|i was unable to recover the syllabus that had "additional reading" on it. however, i did find some things in notes and still have a couple of the books we used in the class.
one book you may already have is Victims by P.S. Paludan.
it covers the community of Shelton Laurel, Madison Co, NC(just across the border from Greeneville). it deals specifically with the execution of 13 deemed guerillas. also including the escalation of hostilities once the confederate govt sent Gen. Heth to crack down on w NC insurrections.
it is from my recollection very thorough and i believe contains elements of what you're pursuing and at vy least could point you towards some primary sources.
another was A Year in the South by S.V. Ash. It covers the trials 4 southerners endured in their own hand (with artistic additions) in the final year of the war. One of the four was John Robertson who was a southern sympathizer from Greene Co. TN and who during the course of the war fled from two or three difft homes eventually settling in Roane Co. (south of Knoxville)
the other three are from difft parts AL MS and VA but journals are very detailed and it was a very interesting read.
*a couple leads in the bibliography
Noel C. Fisher, War at Every Door: Partisan Politics and Guerilla Violence in East Tennessee.
Digby Gordon Seymour, Divided Loyalties: Fort Sanders and the Civil War in East Tennessee.
i also think the "Tennessee Historical Quarterly" and "Journal of East Tennessee History" would be good sources to search through.
sorry i couldn't be of more help but i'll keep my eye open.
