John Hunt Morgan Trail Tour group meeting Thursday

The Jefferson/Carroll/Columbiana County John Hunt Morgan Heritage Trail Tour Committee will meet at 7 p.m. Thursday at the Bergholz Volunteer Fire Department hall on state Route 164, Bergholz.

The committee will be releasing its promotional fundraiser book, “The Last Night and The Last Day.”

At left is Dr. Keith Burgett from the Animal Veterinary Clinic in Carrollton, who is holding his antique copy of the book which was used to help print the new edition.

In 1913, using local history, eyewitness accounts and photos from Bergholz and the surrounding countryside, J.H. Simms and Virginia Dare Shriver-Simms wrote the story of the last two days of Morgan’s Raid.
