New Albany on “State of Affairs” this Tuesday.


From the public radio news channel’s web site:

State of Affairs on WFPL, 89.3 FM

Tuesday, July 25

Founded in July 1813 by the Scribner brothers from New York, New Albany is a town rich in history and tradition. Located in Southern Indiana, only 10 minutes from downtown Louisville, New Albany offers the dual advantages of small town life and easy access to a metropolitan area. During the Civil War, New Albany was a strategic supply center for the Union Armies fighting in the South and a hospital center for the wounded being sent north. It was also a stop on the famous “underground railroad” for slaves escaping from the South. Whether your interests lie in history, festivals or small-town life, New Albany has a little something to offer for everyone. Join us Tuesday, July 25, to find out more about New Albany’s past, present, and future.

Scheduled to be in the studio are historians Gregg Seidl and David Barksdale, and writer Robyn Davis Sekula. Here’s more about the program:
