Appeals for the release of Judge Levi Trewhitt
Appeals for the release of Judge Levi Trewhitt
Excerpts from Confederate records, showing a few of several appeals for the release of Judge Trewhitt from Confederate custody after his unjust arrest following a series of guerrilla raids on railroad bridges by Union guerrillas in East Tennessee. He was arrested only because he was a known Union sympathizer, and a known civic leader, not because of any real suspicion that he was involved in the raids. Despite the appeals and his obvious innocence, he was transferred to the infamous military prison in Mobile, Alabama, where he died within two months.

Which database fields are searched

Media items are images, documents of various types, and even recordings or videos that are attached to people, events, and places, and are defined in a database table. This page searches three descriptive fields in that table:

  1. Title, which is no more than one line long. All media items have a title.
    (The title of each media item is listed in the "Description" column in the search results, and serves as a hyperlink that displayes the full media item.)
  2. Description is longer than the title, but usually no more than a few lines long. Media items should have a description, but many do not.
    (The description of each media item is also listed in the "Description" column the search results.)
  3. BodyText is a block of text that
    • Can be arbitrarily large,
    • Typically supplies additional information about a media item, and
    • Can have rich formatting (i.e. headings, paragraphs, bold text, colors, etc.)
    (The BodyText value of a media item can be seen only if you view the full media item.)

Significantly, not all media items are individual files; the entire text of some stories is stored in the media item's BodyText field rather than in a separate Word, PDF, or HTML document.

What's in the 'Gallery'
The Gallery shows the little thumbnail images that are associated with media items- especially with photos. Significantly, media items without thumbnails do not appear in the Gallery.

Media items that are not likely to have thumbnails include

  1. Non-images such as Word documents, PDF's, HTML pages, etc.
  2. Images that represent of text that was scanned from books and other documents. In truth, it wouldn't be hard to generate thumbnails for those images, and some do have thumbnails, but it isn't generally worthwhile to do so, since thumbnails of scanned documents are usually too small to reveal anything useful about the document.
This help message window can be dragged out of the way, and left on the screen as long as you need it.
