I will see you, my friends and family, either on Saturday, October 5 at the Kimbrell-Bennett Family Reunion in Calhoun County at Ellard Baptist Church or at the big signing in Bruce, Mississippi, at 12:00 noon on Tuesday, October 15, hosted by the Jesse Yancy Memorial Library. Then on Tuesday, same day, at 6:00 p.m. at the Sons of Confederate Veterans Meeting in Calhoun County. Please connect with us on one of these dates, or give me a call and let's meet up. See you there!
Update on RACHEL!
I am knee-deep in research for this book. There's so much history related to the War for Southern Independence, and since my family fought this war, I have embraced the privilege of learning as much as I possibly can and passing it on. It is our heritage. It does not take a rocket scientist to understand that our country is presently in a downhill spiral, and when I study the War Era of 1861-1865 and the years of Reconstruction havoc and struggle to pick up the pieces, I see an alignment with what is going on presently. When I read about the political corruption in Washington, D.C. during the Lincoln years, Reconstruction and readmission to the Union, I see and feel what my forebears must have seen and felt as they were living it.
When will we ever learn?
