Gen. Stone encounters an Oxford ghost

Historian and columnist Jack Lamar Mayfield tells us about the Stone family Bride’s House on College Hill Street — now Washington Avenue. It was originally built in the 1850s and was often visited by William Faulkner until it burned in 1942. (May 27, 2011, Page 2B)

‘Oxford in the Civil War’ – A new book from History Press

“Oxford in the Civil War: Battle for a Vanquished Land” by Stephen Enzweiler is the new book just published by The History Press of Charleston, S.C. The author is a journalist and senior editor for “Y’all” magazine published here in Oxford and he writes extensively about Mississippi and the South.

I really didn’t find out anything that I didn’t already know, but the way the author has presented the data makes for pleasurable reading. I have read these stories over the years in various different places, but Enzweiler presents them in manner that follows Oxford from its earliest day through the war years. (October 8, 2010, Page 2B)
