April 9 Is Taking Shape

Spring into Living History planned for April 9 is taking shape. Actors have been assembled, the kettle of blackeyed peas and the big pan of cornbread are ready for cooking, Confederate troops are gathering at the camp. Isolene Minter Wimberly, a distinguished lady of the community, departed this earth a hundred years ago but I hear that she’ll visit with us during our living history celebration. ... Mrs. Isolene Minter Wimberly made the presentation of the flag to Sgt. Warren, color bearer of Co. I, 6th Georgia Regiment. Come and hear her story. All you need to do is stroll thru the cemetery and she’ll introduce herself to you. Just so you’ll recognize her when you meet her, I’ve included a picture.

Bring the children and let them ride the mule drawn wagon down Richland Road just like so many others during the 19th century. It’s promising to be a fun day.
