America entered a new era when the Civil War ended 150 years ago. In order to help people better understand this time period, a month of activities have been planned to mark the Season of Emancipation in our area. Sergeant Major Jarvis Rosier, Sr., President of the 2nd Infantry Regiment of the U. S. Colored Troops Living History Association, and Tonja Webb, Chair of the Lady's Auxiliary, join us to tell us more.
