Fort Campbell KY - 101st Airborne DivisionFort Campbell, KY – Author Antonio Elmaleh will speak at Sink Library on Wednesday, May 13th at 6:00pm about his new historical novel “The Ones They Left Behind”.

In 1864 General William T. Sherman and his army marched out of a burning Atlanta and embarked on his infamous “March to the Sea” that ended in December at Savannah. Sherman introduced the concept of “total war” in which civilians felt the direct impact of the destruction of anything that would aid the Confederate war effort.
