Collection Overview

Biography / History
Confederate Army officer, spy, lawyer, and judge Thomas Henry Hines was born on October 9, 1838, in Butler County, Kentucky, to Warren Walker Hines (1812-1898) and Sarah Jamison Carson (1817-1893). He joined the Confederate Army in 1861 and in 1862 became a member of General John Hunt Morgan's cavalry. Hines was captured and imprisoned along with John Hunt Morgan and officers in July 1863. On November 27, 1863, Hines escaped from a prison in Columbus, Ohio, with Morgan and other Confederate soldiers. In March 1864, Hines was commissioned by Confederate President Jefferson Davis to plan the Northwest Conspiracy, an uprising in the North to free prisoners of war and create panic through arson. The conspiracy ultimately failed. Hines married Nancy Nannie Sproule (1843-1897) on November 10, 1864, in Covington, Ky.; they had six children, Alice Thomas Hines being the only one who lived to adulthood. After the Civil War, Hines studied law in Canada with John Cabell Breckinridge. He remained in Canada until March 1866, at which time he moved to Memphis, Tennessee, to edit The Daily Appeal. Additionally, he finished his law studies. In 1867, Hines moved to Bowling Green, Ky. where he established his law practice. Hines was elected to the Kentucky Court of Appeals in 1878 and presided as Chief Justice from 1884-1885. Hines retired in 1885 and died on January 23, 1898.
