In Old Wilkes

Last night, I had the opportunity to speak at the opening of the new Civil War exhibit at the Wilkes County Heritage Museum. Not only did I speak, but so did Gary Coffey, commander of the James B. Gordon Camp, Sons of Confederate Veterans, who sponsored the event; Skip Smith, Colonel of the 26th North Carolina Troops, Reactivated; and Chris Hartley, author of the new book on Stoneman’s Raid.

If you get a chance, stop by the Old Wilkes Court House and check out the exhibit – it includes weapons, flags, and uniforms, and is well worth the ride. Thanks again to the Wilkes Museum for allowing me to come and speak for a few minutes. I look forward to working with them in the future.

Michael C. Hardy, Chris Hartley, and Skip Smith.
