Hats Off! to Michael K. Brantley who was awarded an Archie K. Davis Fellowship for 2019-2020 to help fund research on his third book. His second book is due out next spring from the University of Nebraska Press/Potomac Books: Galvanized: The Odyssey of a Reluctant Carolina Confederate follows a Nash County man who served in both the Confederate and Union armies, fought in several major engagements, escaped capture, walked home, and later was a public servant before being involved in a bizarre murder. Davis Fellowships are awarded on a competitive basis from the North Caroliniana Society for writers to conduct research in the state on North Carolina topics “to advance among citizens of the state knowledge and understanding of their own history and culture.”


Hats Off! to Tom Wood whose latest article in the Nashville Ledger, "Tobacco Out, Hemp in for Tennessee Farmers," about the growth of the hemp industry in Tennessee, was picked up by The Associated Press. It's appeared online in the San Francisco Chronicle, Albany Times-Union, and U.S. News & World Report. "The growth of the state’s hemp industry is booming. The number of licensed growers in Tennessee has increased from 226 in 2018 to more than 2,900 this year."
