The conventional wisdom says that the Confederacy was an agricultural area with little industry. Maybe the conventional wisdom was wrong. Come hear Charles Knight speak about “The Industrial Resources of the Confederacy: Their Extent in 1861, Their Expansion, Their Use, and Their Destruction,” on January 22, 2020.
Chuck was born in Alabama and now lives in Florissant. He has at least 34 direct and collateral ancestors who served in the Confederate Army (and one lonesome Union soldier too). He is a member of the Sterling Price Camp of the Sons of Confederate Veterans. Chuck has extensive college teaching experience in economics, engineering graphics and management.
