David Maney Currin
Following the state's ordinance of secession and the outbreak of the Civil War, he was a delegate from Tennessee to the Confederate Provisional Congress, 1861-62. He then represented his Middle Tennessee district in the First Confederate Congress. A Nashville newspaper wrote, "Hon. D. M. Currin was returned from his district. He deservedly ranks highest as a politician and is as disinterested a patriot as lives. He is a man of good ability and will make a worthy, active and efficient representative."
