Mr. Tony Lett
Event Description:
Mr. Tony Lett is our speaker for the regular monthly meeting at the Gilmer County Library on May 10th. Tony grew up in southwest Atlanta and lives in Oakwood, GA. While he was researching family history, he found relatives in Alabama. When they made contact, he found out that they had a trunk containing his Great-great-grandfather's blood stained clothes from the Civil War. Along with the uniform, the trunk contained letters to his wife, papers, a canteen, and his wife's bonnet.
 
Mr. Lett is an avid war buff and having lived on the edge of the battlefield for the Atlanta Campaign, he has been finding relics in his backyard. He is a former naval officer, member of the Sons of the Revolution, Sons of Confederate Veterans, Atlanta Vietnam Veterans Business Association, and has a degree in anthropology.
 
Come for refreshments at 1:30 p.m., and the meeting begins at 2:00 p.m.
