TITLE: "ONE BRIEF DAY" NEW AND EXPANDED EDITION
AUTHOR: Garnett Walker
DATE PRINTED: 2007
PRICE: $22.00 + $1.32 tax
SHIPPING: $4.00
BINDING: Softback Spiral
PAGES: 65
DESCRIPTION: The world has known untold numbers of great historians.  From ancient days, there have been those who recognized the value of preserving a record of people, places, and events.  These efforts have, for the most part, been completely unselfish in nature.
True historians are not seeking to make a name for themselves.  Their reward is
the simple preservation of the historical record that will instill a knowledge and
pride that comes from knowing "from whence we came."
Garnett R. Walker, the premier historian of Wayne County, Kentucky was such a
man!
Mr. Walker spent the major part of his life, in his words, "dabbling" in
Wayne County history.  Those of us who have benefitted from his "dabbling" know that his research went far beyond a surface research of Wayne County
history!
He carefully researched his subject and, with the spirit and skill of a master teacher, interpreted and communicated that history in a way to inspire us and instill pride in our heritage.
In 1961, Garnett wrote ONE BRIEF DAY to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the beginning of the Civil War.  He faithfully records the effect the war had on the people of Wayne County.  Every person acquainted with Wayne County history will be able to relate to this publication.
In this memorial edition of the work he published, we have sought to remain faithful to the original text.  The reader will find some of the statements "dated" in that those statements were ture at the time they were written.  We have not changed many of those statements, desiring to let the reader experience the full effect of of Mr. Walker's writing skills.
We have added many photographs and other visual items that we hope will enhance your reading enjoyment of this important work.
May the memory of Garnett R. Walker remain alive in the minds and hearts of all
those who love Wayne County history!

PRICE: $24.95 + $1.50 tax
SHIPPING: $4.00
BINDING: Hardback
PAGES: 194
DESCRIPTION: "Few figures exhibit the bitterness and hatred that the American Civil War could generate as well as the notorious Tennessee guerrilla Champ Ferguson.  Thomas D. Mays neither glorifies nor vilifies his subject; rather, he shows that to Ferguson scouting for Confederate cavalry, carrying off Federal stock, killing Union supporters, and shooting captured Federal troops were all part of the same war.  Cumberland Blood reveals the American Civil War in its most personal, raw, and disturbing form."  --Noel C. Fisher
"Author Thomas D. Mays traces Ferguson's life in the Cumberland highlands of southern Kentucky..."

TITLE: "DIARY OF CAPTAIN JOHN W. TUTTLE"
AUTHOR: Captain John W. Tuttle
DATE PRINTED: 2010
PRICE: $35.00+ $2.10tax
SHIPPING: $4.00
BINDING: Softback Spiral
PAGES: 300
DESCRIPTION:  Wayne County Kentucky has produced as many notable citizens as any county in Kentucky or the Nation.
The roll of distinguished public servants certainly would include the Honorable John W. Tuttle.
It is impossible to study the history of Monticello and Wayne County without being impressed with the role Captain Tuttle played in our history.
Captain Tuttle served in the  Civil War.  He became an attorney of renown, a churchman of influence, and a businessman of some wealth.
His devoted service to the citizens of Wayne County continued uninterrupted for scores of years.
Not only did Captain Tuttle serve in the Civil War; he lived long enough to design the base of the famous Doughboy monument that stands in the public square of Monticello.  Captain Tuttle was selected to deliver the Dedication Address when the Doughboy monument was unveiled in 1923.  (That marvelous address is a part of this publication along with several photographs.)
It is with great pride that the Wayne County Museum makes available to the public this diary Captain Tuttle kept during the difficult years of the Civil War.  The Diary portrays in a magnificent way the effect the War had on the citizens of Wayne County.Every citizen of Wayne County benefits from the life of this great citizen, patriot, and public servant.
Some years ago an edited version of the diary was published.  This particular version is not edited.
