Joseph Lusk II's story illustrates an aspect of local Civil War history that's sometimes forgotten: many people in East Tennessee supported the Union.
Tim McCoy is a great-great-great grandson of Lusk, and McCoy sponsored a new historical marker that tells exactly what happened in 1864 when 73-year-old Lusk fought back against rebel invaders. The marker, located at 7723 Dalton Pike, S.E. in Cleveland, was dedicated on June 13th. McCoy joins us to talk about the marker and about Bradley County history.
