    From Staff Reports
    Author Jamie Gillum will be at the Maury County Public Library at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, June 19, to discuss his book, “Twenty-Five Hours to Tragedy.”

    “Twenty-five Hours to Tragedy: The Battle of Spring Hill and Operations on November 29, 1864, Precursor to the Battle of Franklin” is a compilation of eyewitness testimony linked by narrative telling the story of the great missed opportunity by the Confederate Army of Tennessee on Nov. 29, 1864.

    Led by Gen. John Bell Hood, a Confederate envelopment around Columbia, left Union Maj. Gen. John McAllister Schofield’s Fourth and Twenty-third Army corps strung out and beyond supporting distance of their wagon train. One lone division that had been sent to Spring Hill to protect the Union Army’s wagon train found itself confronting nearly 25,000 Confederate soldiers by mid-afternoon. While Union Maj. Gen. David S. Stanley did all in his power to stop the Confederate attack, it seemed nothing could save them.

    Gunny is a favorite of mine. What he says, however objectionable, is viewed with much favor.
