The Battle Continues, With Local Correspondence

The Battle for Calhoun has continued over 18 weeks. We have seen the rise and fall of the Moccasin Rangers. We have had an up close look at the Battle of Arnoldsburg and the Sycamore Skirmish. We have inspected some of the interesting Calhoun characters like “Granny,” “Uncle Jimmy,” Perry Conley, Nancy Hart, and J.C. Rathbone.

In the next month, we will continue our research through actual letters and stories from the book, “Calhoun County in the Civil War.” The Calhoun Historical Society is excited to see the letters in print again for all to view.

We plan to continue the series into September as a preparation for the county’s first Civil War reenactment. We hope you continue to read and develop your understanding of the conflict in which our state was formed.

We appreciate the Historical Society’s cooperation. Through its efforts, we bring you personal letters and journals from individuals that probably are on a branch of your own family tree. As you read these correspondence, look for familiar names and places. You will certainly recognize many.

Thus, the Battle for Calhoun continues with connections and family ties that run back to the early 1860s. Next week, we begin with Civil War letters.
