John Price Buchanan
Birth: Oct. 4, 1847
Williamson County
Tennessee, USA
Death: May 14, 1930
Murfreesboro
Rutherford County
Tennessee, USA

Governor of Tennessee, 1891-1893. Established a secondary-school system for Tennessee and a pension program for Confederate Veterans. The "convict release system", used to ease the cost of housing convicts, put many coal miners out of work when convicts were hired for much lower wages. When this matter incited violence in 1892, Buchanan used troops to ease the issue. (bio by: Charles P. Sands)
