    We were all created in the image of God. Adam and Eve lived in paradise and were sinless.
    The tempter came to Eve and she gave to Adam. They gave in to sin for forbidden fruit and to know good and evil.

  • It’s been called the War of Northern Aggression, the Civil War, the War Between the States, and the War of Rebellion. Perhaps the most poignant name given to this tragic time in our country’s history is the Boys’ War. Boys, some as young as 12 and from all areas of the country — including Owen County — joined the fight. Although they were familiar with firearms and their bodies were hardened by toil, nothing could prepare these young men for the carnage, disease, and devastation wrought by war.
