Brinkley, as you may know, became famous in the early twentieth century for his procedures of inserting goat glands into men's testicles to improve virility. He got rich (by…

Hello Jeremy,

Yes, there is some documented evidence regarding Palmer and the 15th Penn. Cav. staying at Hickory Nut Gap.

Keep in mind, I have not looked at this in several years so some of it is not that fresh in my mind. There are a number of places in the record that indicate Palmer was there. He sent dispatches back to Tennessee that indicated they were sent from "Hickory Nut Gap." I'd have to dig a little to find a couple of those.

When the Civil War Trails people asked me about it I pointed them to the writing of Capt. Weand of the 15th Penn. It's on page 508 of Weand's account of the war called Our last Campaign, He leaves no doubt that they were at Hickory Nut Gap and that the highlands he referes to are the meadows at Berarwallow Mountain. I do not think there is any other highland location that would provide forage for 1,300 horses. If you would like to read the whole thing it is on the Civil War Trails marker on Highway 74 just accross the road from Hickory Nut Gap Farm. Back then it was called Sherrill''s Inn.


Best of luck with your project.
