A Look at Decatur
Noted Decatur historian Bill Dennis just brought me a copy of a book of works (just printed! that he has collected called, “A Look at Decatur Through Old Newspapers.”
This book has newspaper excerpts from a number of different newspapers primarily in the South. Found here are articles from the early 1830s to the early Twentieth Century with a special section of articles dealing with Decatur’s tribulations during the Civil War. This is a fantastic collection that we will keep in the OSB’s research library and that we will make accessible to the public.
Thank you so much, Bill! By the way, Bill is also a noted historian on the Methodist Church in North Alabama.
