FOSL Sponsors Lecture on City of Smyrna Civil War Artifact Collection

Scott Butler, Vice President and Senior Archaeologist at Brockington Cultural Resources was our guest speaker yesterday. The Brockinton firm recently curated a collection of thousands of Civil War artifacts acquired by the City of Smyrna through the good offices of Mayor Max Bacon. Three displays of material from this valuable collection (known as the Cox/ Armstrong Collection), all fabricated by Brockington, are already available for viewing at the second floor levels of the Smyrna Library, Smyrna City Hall, and Brawner Hall on Atlanta Road. Mr. Butler spoke about his work on the collection and Brockington’s recommendations for the storage, management, and display of this impressive collection of Civil War artifacts.

The "First Sunday" lecture series is held in the Smyrna Public Library Meeting Room and is sponsored by the Friends of Smyrna Library.
