In discussing literary criticism, fiction, poetry, popular song, and memoir, Apples and Ashes reminds us of Confederate literature's once-great expectations. Before their defeat and abjection-before apples turned to ashes in their mouths-many Confederates thought they were in the process of creating a nation and a national literature that would endure.

Review quote Coleman Hutchison's Apples and Ashes is a welcome addition to the robust and ever-growing field of Confederate nationalism scholarship.
Bernath "Civil War Book Review " With chapters addressing bookmaking, music, and memoir, Apples and Ashes is impressively researched and beautifully delivered. No one can dismiss Confederate literature as uninteresting or unimportant after Apples and Ashes --Robert K. Nelson "Southern Spaces " Hutchison's study of the literature of the Confederacy is unique, the first volume devoted exclusively to this subject.
Highly recommended. Apples and Ashes makes a powerful case that the defeat of the Confederacy obscured the considerable merits of its literature. Hutchison wisely supplements resisting Northern paradigms in print with a strategic embrace of European literary conventions. As a result, Apples and Ashes will be of keen interest to Civil War historians intrigued by literature's nation-building capacity, to literary critics impatient with the persistent gap between Melville and Twain, to transatlantic scholars newly roused by the war's transnational repercussions, and to globalists caught up in New Southern Studies across multiple disciplines.
Hutchison's argument, that we should take seriously Confederate literature's nationalist aspirations, positions its relevance to the interdisciplinary field of American Studies. Its focus on a completely understudied body of southern literature will make it of central importance to Southern studies and American literary studies. Nelson "Gertrude Conaway Vanderbilt Professor of English, Vanderbilt University " Beautifully written and compellingly argued, this first literary history of the Confederacy displays its author's extensive knowledge of book history, print culture, Civil War history, and political theory.
Hutchison shows that there was a significant literary culture in the Confederate States, and he pushes us to think against the grain in taking account of that literature as a 'national' literature. One of his major contributions is to offer a new, more complex, and contingent way of thinking about U.

They hit it off as a couple and married in As partners, they continued teaching conflict resolution and nonviolence in hospitals, factories, churches, government agencies, businesses and community colleges.
They also taught conflict resolution for three years as part of a summer graduate program in conflict management at Syracuse University, New York. They frequently participated in numerous protests or demonstrations advocating for peace. After the partners took a course in mediation taught by the Quakers at Swarthmore College, Tom and Darylene helped found the Conflict Resolution Service in Traverse City, a program in Michigan that provides mediation as an option for solving disputes in Michigan State's crowded circuit courts.
Tom has described mediation as "helping people have difficult conversations.
In Tom and Darylene moved to Washington State to be closer to Darylene's five children and their families. He used his prior experiences to help plan vigils and nonviolent actions at the Bangor Trident nuclear submarine base. As he had wherever he was, he put himself on the line many times there, often risking arrest by entering the roadway and blocking traffic to symbolically close the base. He also created street theater scripts that were used during vigils at the submarine base to entertain and educate people. Tom loved hiking and camping in summer and cross country skiing in winter.
Major Tom - Wikipedia
Most of all, he loved gardening. When he moved to Traverse City he bought a house, so he had a garden. His goal was to feed himself from his own garden and in a back yard of 35 x 40 feet, he pretty much did that. He also had a great garden in Washington. As he became more frail, Tom never stopped working for nonviolence and peace. Though he could no longer protest or risk arrest by physically walking or march for peace, he encouraged others to do so and consistently sent letters to his congressmen and women. Even on the day before his death, he asked one of his nurses to consider resisting taxes intended for war.
Tom wanted his ashes to be near those who work for peace.
