FESTIVA presents Storyteller Dolores Hydock & Music Historian Bobby Horton

Sallie Independence Foster was 12 years old and living in Florence, Alabama, when the Civil War began. Her journal, begun in June 1861, paints a picture of a child's innocent world colliding with the reality of war. The journal continues through the war and for another 22 years Sallie grows to be a young woman, marries, and begins a family of her own. Her diaries were carefully preserved by Sallie's family and are now housed in the Archives at the University of North Alabama. Storyteller and actress Dolores Hydock, accompanied by nationally known music historian Bobby Horton, intertwine Sallie's writings, letters, historical photographs, and music of the time to create a uniquely personal glimpse at a radically changing world. This is Mr. Horton's third appearance with FESTIVA.

All events are FREE of charge.
