McNairy County Historical Society Meeting

There was a great turnout last night for my presentation to the McNairy County Historical Society at the Jack McConnico Memorial Library in Selmer, TN. Despite the rainy weather, there was a packed meeting room when I arrived and more chairs were being brought in from the library. I was very honored that people came out to listen to me talk about Fielding Hurst and the Sixth Tennessee (U.S.) Cavalry. Afterward, I answered questions from members and guests, signed copies of my book Hurst’s Wurst, and had the opportunity to talk with many people interested in Hurst, the Civil War, and their family histories that were tied to members of the Sixth Tennessee.

My wife Cindy and I sold 19 copies of the book–thank you very much to everyone who purchased one (or two)!

A member of the Sons of Confederate Veterans in Corinth, MS who came to the meeting invited me to address one of their future meetings. I should have details in a few weeks.

Thank you, Judy Hammons and Nancy Kennedy with the Historical Society, for inviting me to speak. I enjoy coming back to Selmer and McNairy County whenever I have the chance.

Hurst’s Wurst Presentation and Book Signing

I will be speaking to the McNairy County Historical Society on Tuesday, Oct. 27 at 7 p.m. at the Jack McConnico Memorial Library in Selmer, TN. I will discuss why I chose to research and write about Fielding Hurst and the Sixth Tennessee (U.S.) Cavalry, share a little about the man, his regiment, and other Unionists in southwest Tennessee during the Civil War, and answer questions.

I’ll bring copies of my book Hurst’s Wurst: Colonel Fielding Hurst and the Sixth Tennessee Cavalry U.S.A. The cost is $20.00 each and I would be pleased to sign it.

(It’s never too early to think about a Christmas gift for your favorite Civil War enthusiast!)
