In this interview staged at the antebellum home of Charles Manship in Jackson, Mississippi, host Stephen Koranda talks to author H. Grady Howell, Jr. about his new book, Chimneyville: Likenesses of Early Jackson, Mississippi, a pictorial account of the growth and development of the city of Jackson, Mississippi from its founding in the 1820s through the 1950s. Particular interest is devoted to the Civil War era of Jacksons history. Mr. Howell is a reservoir of information about Mississippi and its place in the Civil War and the town of Jackson they called Chimneyville after General Sherman burned it to the ground.
