Mammy: A Term of Endearment    I have a new novel I titled, Mammy: A Term of Endearment. Mammy is a fictional story of the slavery of a black woman who after being freed became my father’s mammy.

It is a story of love, hate, romance, and humor.    Included in the novel are…See More

Finding a great book beyond the in-crowd mainstream

A new way to find great new booksby Rob Neufeld            I keep searching for ways to be as open as possible to great books as they come out.  It’s not easy because: 1) our guides—publishers and reviewers—follow certain channels, comparable to radio playlists, to stay smart; and 2) a random approach is impractical.            Readers’ online reviews help, but there’s too much; I need a filter, based partly on authority.  I could ask people in person—and that’s pretty interesting.  Rarely do…See More

"Us versus Them" does not help fight against racism; worsens sectionalism

“Us versus them” is not good historyby Rob Neufeld             Writing about history and the complex lives that play out within it does not sell as well as team spirit, especially in this age of clicks and likes.            I recently confronted this truth when I wrote my article last week about the minds of our leaders in 1851. The word “slavery” was added to the headline to alert people to its relevance.  Seeing that term connected people to a cause they felt strongly about, particularly in…See More

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.
