April Monthly Meeting

  "Madison County's Civil War: A new perspective."  



Dan Slagle


We've all heard or read about the horrible killing of 13 prisoners under orders of Lt. Col. James Keith - because of salt. The story as we know it comes to us generally from post war "Unionists." How much is true??? This program will cover events and attitudes from the beginning of the war including how army policies and newspapers played a major role, which helps explain how the killing could have taken place.



There is never a charge for our meetings.

Public is welcome!
