A Living History of D.H. Hill, Stonewall Jackson’s Brother-in-Law

September 12 @ 6:30 pm

Handley Regional Library System is excited to announce a “living history” of General D.H. Hill on September 12th in the Robinson

Auditorium at Handley Library.  The program begins at 6:30PM and includes a first-person impression, poem, humor, and articles from retired citizen-soldier and historian, Doug Batson.    The event is free and open to the public, and is sponsored by the Friends of Handley Regional Library.

For the 2011-2015 Civil War Sesquicentennial, Batson portrayed General D.H. Hill at over 40 events in four states.  General Daniel Harvey Hill was Stonewall Jackson’s brother-in-law and was recognized as sarcastic and sharp-tongued.  He was forced out of two Confederate armies.

In the turbulent post-Civil War Reconstruction era, Hill served as editor of a Charlotte-based magazine, The Land We Love.  The publication sought to reanimate Southern literary culture and was popular at the North and well as at the South.
