Membership Meeting of the
Tennessee Genealogical Society
Immediately following the meeting, author John Babb will discuss his new historical fiction, "Voices of the Dead", which is based of one of the most dramatic events events to strike Tennessee, Mississippi, and Louisiana. During four terror filled months in 1878, a yellow fever epidemic in the Lower Mississippi Valley struck 154 towns and cities (including Collierville), killed over 20,000 people, and wiped entire families and businesses from the face of the earth. A determined band of volunteer heroes and heroines fought the virus with every fiber of their being. Unfortunately, some had ulterior motives to take advantage of the situation, to include larceny, and even murder. John Babb will discuss his latest book and its deep connection to the area.
Mr. Babb will have books available for purchase at the program. Books will cost $18. For every book sold a portion will be donated to the society.
Refreshments will be served.
