|Keeping the Home Fires Burning: Southern Life During the Civil War|
Anna Williams, from Agnes Scott College, will discuss on the lives of Stone Mountain residents during the Civil War. Ms. Williams read many letters from farming families in the Stone Mountain area while gathering information for her degree at Agnes Scott College. She found answers to such questions as "How did they get crops planted and harvested when all the able-bodied men were fighting in the war?" and "What about getting meat for the table?"
