We’re pleased to announce that our 130th anniversary edition of Purdy native and Confederate Gen. Marcus Joseph Wright’s 1882 book Reminiscences of the Early Settlement and Early Settlers of McNairy County, Tennessee is almost finished. The book will be a gray cloth hardback with dust jacket and approximately 178 pages in length. It will feature:
A reprint of the first edition of Wright’s Reminiscences–just as it was originally printed–with spots and other blemishes cleaned and faded and missing print corrected.
Original materials added: a new introduction, biographical sketch of Gen. Wright, and his pre-war memoirs (which have never been published).
A new comprehensive index of surnames and places
We’re also announcing a pre-release special for readers who purchase their copy early–$25.00 each, a savings of $5.00 off the cover price! The special only runs from Monday, June 12 to Sunday, June 17, so order yours today!
