New Huntsville Times Article on "Real People, Real History" Project
Check out the February 1, 2010, article in the Huntsville Times about Dr. John Kvach and his community collaborators' work to track down Civil War-era photos and documents in Madison County!
This is part of the History-Channel-sponsored effort to create an online exhibit called "Real People, Real History" in order to preserve public and private memories of the Civil War as it affected people who lived here in 1861 through 1865. The project and Web site will serve as foundations for the 150th anniversary of the Civil War in 2011.
