Folks - I have two really exciting events coming up this weekend, and everyone is invited. On Saturday afternoon (1-4pm), we are having a Watauga County History Day at the Public library in Boone. Lots of good speakers, including yours truly, who will be speaking about the rise of the Confederate veteran movement in the area.
On Sunday evening, at the Aaron Baptist Church in historic downtown Montezuma (that’s in Avery County), I’ll be doing a program on gravestone art (or cemetery iconography). Program starts at 7:00 pm
Both of these events are free and open to the public.
Hope to see you there.
