Antonio Thompson Gives Talk to Historical Society
Antonio Thompson, author of German Jackboots on Kentucky Bluegrass, spoke at Austin Peay State University on Monday August 16 to a large group of people representing the local Historical Society and the Clarksville, Tennessee community. This group was especially interested in the topic since Thompson's book contains stories and information about the German prisoners of war held at the local Army post during WWII (Fort Campbell known as Camp Campbell during WWII). Dr. Thompson will have several speaking engagements in the area in the coming months including Hopkinsville and Bowling Green, Kentucky. Check back for more information about these events.
