Streight's Raid - 150th Anniversary

May 3, 2013, marks the 150th anniversary of Union Colonel Abel D. Streight surrendering his M1848 Artillery Sword to Confederate General Nathan Bedford Forrest. (Curious that an infantry officer would carry an artilllery sword) The sword now resides at the Alabama Department of Archives and History. Many thanks to ADAH staff who gave us access to photograph and film this artifact for the production of our film about Streight's Raid for the Cullman County Museum.

You can see more behind the scenes pictures from the documentary we produced in the portfolio section.
