Horace Atwater and our 225th Celebration

I am finding out more and more each minute about Rev. Horace Cowles Atwater. I will preach one of his sermons tomorrow. John Thompson wrote an excellent article in today's Johnson City Press about him and our celebration tomorrow.

From his research he discovered that Rev. Atwater had written a book,
Incidents of a Southern Tour or The South as Seen with Northern Eyes, in 1857. I just found out about a minute or so ago that you can read this text on-line!

Tomorrow, you will hear a sermon of his, the first to be preached since from his own voice in 1876. It will be a slice of history!
