Eddie Price http://wkms.org en Kentucky's Contribution in the War of 1812 topic for MCLIB Presentation Thursday http://wkms.org/post/kentuckys-contribution-war-1812-topic-mclib-presentation-thursday <p>The “Raisin”—short for the River Raisin that runs by the site—was the first national battlefield park devoted to the War of 1812. And it’s no Gettysburg, but rather a small patch of “brownfield” - ground contaminated by industry - south of Detroit. Thursday at 7 p.m. the McCracken County Public Library hosts author and historian Eddie Price for its Evenings Upstairs program - titled "Remember The Raisin!" Kentucky's Contribution in the War of 1812. Mr. Price joins Kate Lochte for a preview.</p><p> Mon, 11 Nov 2013 20:02:12 +0000 Kate Lochte 36471 at http://wkms.org Kentucky's Contribution in the War of 1812 topic for MCLIB Presentation Thursday
