If you were in downtown Glasgow last Friday morning, you couldn’t have missed the large crowd of young people.  Mr. Sam Terry led 160 Glasgow Middle School students as they toured downtown Glasgow, and got a first hand look at local Civil War history.

 

The group made stops at the historic Christopher Tompkins home (Civil War hospital), the Spotswoodhouse - Glasgow's oldest structure which was the home of two Confederate Generals, visited the Presbyterian Church to talk about local abolitionists, saw John A. "Old Reb" Murray's last home plus, toured our own restored historic Fort Williams to learn about the construction of the fort which was occupied by "Tater Diggers" who demanded the town's preachers pray for Abe Lincoln and the Union.

 

Adrian Davis, a teacher at GMS, says Terry really makes history come to life:
