Moonshine Hike

Making a living off the land in Tennessee has always been full of challenges even with the abundant natural resources we have all around us. It was even worse at the end of the Civil War, in places like the Highland Rim…below the Cumberland Plateau… where poverty was not uncommon. Breaking the law sometimes became part of the solution. If you had gone hiking or climbing deep into in the hilly and rocky countryside near Byrdstown… you just might have come face to face with a moonshiner. Or maybe you would come across a cabin in a clearing and see a child… who would one day be honored with a Nobel Peace Prize. ┬áThere are more than 15-hundred books, original photographs, and other memorabilia housed in the Hull Library and Archives.
