The April 1865 Society, as the official sponsors of the annual Battle of Selma events, will again celebrate the history and heritage of the period with the second class of writers featured in a Civil War Writer's Forum. This fresh addition to "Battle" events was first held in conjunction with last year’s activities. Hosted by ArtsRevive at the ArtsRevive Carneal Building at 3 Church Street, the 2012 class of writers includes 3 outstanding period authors.


James R. Bennett is the author of the encyclopedic volume "Tannehill and the Growth of the Alabama Iron Industry," the definitive work on early iron production in the state.

Jacqueline F. Hurlbut has taken over 100 war time letters of her husband's familial antecedent, union Brevet Brigadier General George Ashworth Cobham, Jr., and produced a volume titled "Patriot Heart."

David Rothstein’s “Casualties” was inspired by a true occurrence. It’s a story of the power of love, and of the strength and heroism of ordinary people confronting overwhelming events, and largely set in Cahawba’s Castle Morgan.


This event is open to the public and will be held from 5 PM until 6:30 PM April 27th at the ArtsRevive Carneal Building at 3 Church Street. Light refreshments will be served during the event. Books may be purchased from the authors following their brief introductions to their works.
