Paperback: $15.00
Ships in 3-5 business days.
JUNE 4, 1863... As the sun began to set below the horizon across the May River estuary, smoke clouds still billowed from the burning homes and buildings of the town; when it rose on the morning of... More > June 5, it was evident that Bluffton's antebellum way of life had vanished forever. Perhaps in an omen of what was to come for the South, the burning of Bluffton, South Carolina, in 1863 was a prelude to the farewell of the Southern plantation era and of the institution of slavery. In the years leading up to the Civil War, Bluffton had gained national prominence as a hotbed of secessionist activity. The Bluffton Movement was sparked during a fiery political gathering held under a sprawling and magnificent live oak now referred to as the Secession Oak. The movement generated a dangerous whirlwind of political rhetoric that only war and devastation would silence.

In the autumn it was apple fights. Maine was as burdened down with apples then as Mallorca is with lemons and olives today—but apples are better for having fights with. They hurt like hell but... More > they don’t kill. The daily war. You cut an alder stick and jammed the apple on it and snapped it like a whip and the apple went twice as fast and far as if you'd just thrown it and then it crushed itself into someone’s ear. Oh, great fun. The alders themselves—not the European alder but the small swamp-alder that grows in Maine—also made admirable weapons. When we didn’t have apples or snowballs to hurl at each other, we always had alder-spears, pointed and potentially deadly. By tacit agreement, a cliché, rock-fights were out, as were machine guns and atom bombs. Of course pebbles were allowed if you were sensible enough to have a slingshot, which we all did.< Less
