Dr. Pete Sparks Talked about the War Between the States

On Thursday, July 26, 2001, we were priviledged to have Dr. Pete Sparks speak to us on the War Between the States. He gave us fascinating information on the participation of local people in the War, and some background on the War as it effected Grant, Marshall County, North Alabama, and Alabama as a whole.

Dr. Sparks dressed in an authentic uniform and told about the various parts of his clothing and equipment.

Everyone greatly enjoyed his presentation, and we all learned from it.
