ADAMS TENNESSEE: (Smokey Barn News) – Did you know the longest and most violent conflict between the end of the Civil War and the civil rights struggles of the mid‘60s happened right here in Northern Tennessee and Southwestern Kentucky in the early 1900s?
Back by popular demand, three of the foremost authorities of the Black Patch Tobacco Wars come together to discuss this historic and turbulent time. Kentucky Supreme Court Justice Bill Cunningham of Kuttawa and author of On Bended Knees; Rick Gregory, Ph.D. of Adams; and William T. Turner of Hopkinsville are featured in the Black Patch 3: A Conversation About the Night Riders which kicks-off the first of the four-event Bell Witch Fall Festival in Adams.
Join these noted historians this Sunday, Sept. 21 at 3 p.m. at the Bell School Auditorium on Hwy 41 in Adams.
