On Thursday, July 16 at 6 p.m. Eastern, join Friends of Blackwater for a webinar titled “Shootout at the Depot” – How a 19th Century Tucker County Gunfight Became a National News Sensation, and Pitted Neighbor Against Neighbor. Register today by following this URL: https://bit.ly/saveblackwater
Did you know that in 1898, newspaper reporters from across the region descended on Tucker County — to cover a local murder trial that involved the most famous West Virginia lawyers of the era? Did you know that the convicted killer escaped to Virginia, and was never recaptured?
In this free webinar, Tom Rodd, author of a new courtroom drama about the famous Thompson-Eastham gunfight, will speak and show images. The program will include a question-and-answer chat session.
Again, you can register today at this URL: https://bit.ly/saveblackwater – or we’ll also stream this webinar live on our Facebook page, and share a recorded version after the event.
