Seldom Told Tales of Those Who Served Feb 7th - 28th
Bulloch Hall’s Black History Month exhibit, entitled Seldom Told Tales of Those Who Served, honors two people who served the Bulloch family and who are now remembered in letters and historic documents. The exhibit will be at Bulloch Hall during the month of February 2018 and is included with regular tours. Enslaved Luke Monroe and Grace Robinson worked and lived in south Georgia, then Roswell as the property of James and Martha Bulloch. After emancipation, both remained in the Roswell area, owned land, and raised families and became part of Roswell’s legacy.
In conjunction with the exhibit, author C.M. Huddleston will speak on Bulloch’s enslaved population and her new book, Leah’s Story, a fictional account of an enslaved woman’s life on February 7th at 7:00 p.m.
Book Launch February 7th Bulloch Hall’s Osage Room 7 p.m.
In honor of Black History Month, historian and author Connie M. Huddleston will speak about Bulloch Hall’s enslaved population, especially Daddy Luke Monroe and Maum Grace Robinson, and will launch her new historical fiction book, Leah’s Story. Huddleston’s book presents a fictional account of one of the Bulloch slaves from early childhood to Emancipation and beyond. Additionally, Bulloch Hall will unveil their new exhibit panel about the Bulloch family’s slaves. Please join us for this exciting and educational offering.
Leah's Story tells of an African-American girl born on a rice plantation, who grows up serving her rich owners in Georgia. Her life, like so many others, could have ended there were it not for a bit of education and Emancipation, which gave her, and later her children, opportunities to fulfill their dreams. Told in journal form, taken down by the mysterious “Miss Elliott,” Leah’s personal history comes to life like the tiny birds she carves, revealing a lifetime of love and opportunity amidst a culture filled with hardship, pain, and loss.
Leah’s Story - available in paperback for $7.99 and in ebook for Kindle and Nook for $4.99
The 36th Annual Great American Cover-Up Quilt Show Presented by Bulloch Hall Quilt Guild March 9 - 18, 2018 Bulloch Hall Quilt Guild has a unique opportunity to host aspecial exhibit of quilted art which represents the 59 designated National Parks in the United States. There are 177 pieces in the collection. Each National Park is represented by 3 originally designed quilted illustrations - one landscape measures 20" X 40" (some are vertical and some are horizontal) and two 20" square pieces featuring the flora and fauna unique to the representative park. The exhibit will replace the traditional guild quilt show at Bulloch Hall. We feel this is especially unique because of the historical connection with the home (childhood home of Mittie Bulloch, Mother of Theodore Roosevelt) and the beginnings of the National Park System. There has been a book published about this collection, and you can see more about the project at npscentennialquilts.com. The author of the book is Donna DeSoto.
