Civil War

The "Civil War" still captures our interest 150 years afterward. We are only a couple generations removed from this tragedy which deeply affected the South.  David Gregg, a local historian, will present a talk discussing the Civil War in the Shoals on Friday June 24, 3:00 p.m. at Coldwater  Bookstore in Tuscumbia .  The effect of the war can be seen in so many local places. My fellow author Tim Kent has an interesting presentation on the origins of the Confederate flag at his blog at

Page 34 of my  "Signs of the Past" features the Dred Scott marker on Pine Street, Florence. The Supreme Court decision denying Scott his freedom enraged the North and increased North-South tensions.
