The next James County Historical Society meeting will be Sunday, August 2 at 2:30pm at the Ooltewah United Methodist Church. The address is 6131 Relocation Way,
Last quarter the program presented was "Andersonville Prison as related by two Prisoners," that had been presented by Larry Williams. He had read ancestor's letters that were written while in the Andersonville Prison. It was extremely interesting! It was a real learning experience. However, there were more stories and items from other people who had hoped to share them with us, but unfortunately we had run out of time.
So our August meeting will continue with our Andersonville Prison program. Obviously, it was an awesome topic. Please bring your stories with you to the meeting to share. Hope to see everyone there.
As always, it is free to the public and everyone is welcome to attend, so bring a friend with you.
