Dover, TN – The Life and Diary of Nannie Haskins, a film and presentation by Dr. Ellen Kanervo and Sarah Kanervo, will be presented on March 29th, 2012 at 6:00pm at the Stewart County Visitor Center.
The event is free, and it’s just one of many programs offered by the Stewart County community in commemoration of the Sesquicentennial of the Civil War. The Stewart County Visitor Center is located at 117 Visitor Center Lane. Refreshments will be served.
Sixteen-year-old Nannie Haskins lived in Clarksville and kept a diary account of life during the Civil War. Her story has been revived, thanks to a locally-produced film, written and produced by the Kanervos. Dr. Kanervo is professor emeritus of Communications at Austin Peay State University. The film features footage of historic sites and homes near Clarksville, Tennessee.
This program has been made possible by the generosity of Ellen and Sarah Kanervo, the Stewart County Public Library, the Stewart County Arts and Heritage Council, and the National Park Service.
Hope to see you there!
