“In October of 1862,” Paul said, “They were condemning and killing their own neighbors. There were 42 that were executed, because they were suspected to be Union sympathizers.”
Somehow, what happened there has been all but forgotten, which is why Paul set his sights on this moment in his hometown’s history. – Director Johnathan Paul
