So, of course, I agreed. My first piece appeared in today's edition of the newspaper. Here's an excerpt:
Waynesboro’s “Forest Hill” was a wooded area of rolling landscape in March of 1865. Now, it's part of Waynesboro’s Tree Streets.You may read the rest of the piece here.
The area was known in those days as “Gallaher’s Woods,” and served as a major part of the battlefield during the Battle of Waynesboro. But in the next century, Gallaher’s Woods would come to be owned by Richard H. Clemmer, “Captain Dick" — a retired World War I army captain who would develop the area into an upscale neighborhood and what it is known as today: Forest Hill.
