Local Author, Ryan Petty,
To Deliver Program at Genealogical Society, Thursday
From Marynell Bryant
Ryan Petty, Cumby High School history teacher, is a Civil War reenactor. He recently published his historical fiction novel "The Life He Never Knew" which portrayed Thomas, a young Texas soldier, on his way to Tennessee to fight in the battle of Shiloh in 1862. Ryan will be dressed in his reenacting uniform to discuss the life of a Civil War soldier and what his expectations might have been. He will also tell us about his book and his reenacting experiences across Texas and the South.
We have a great program for Thursday night so don't let the cold weather keep you from coming. The meeting will be at 7 p.m. in the Hopkins County Genealogical Society library at 212 Main Street in Sulphur Springs.
