Any suggestions for a good book on East Tennessee during the War?

I'm trying to figure out the back and forth of troops in the area around Knoxville - specifically Grainger County in 1863. Does anyone have a suggestion for a book that would cover that area and time?

Thank you! Looks like a good place to start.

@east tennessee roots do you have any recommendations?

No, I don't have any books that deal with specific campaigns in the area, only about specific units on both sides. The Union 1st, 2nd, 4th, 8th, 9th, 10th, 11th, and 13th TN Cavalry and the Confederate Thomas Legion probably operated in that area during that time

Your post caught my eye. My gt.gt.grandfather ( 3rd Al. Cav.) was wounded and left during Longstreet’s seige of Knoxville, 17 Nov. 1863. Captured and spent rest of War in Ft. Delaware. But he was detached to Wheeler’s Cavalry at the time.
I found this which may be of interest in your search:
