Happy Holidays from the Ghost of Christmas Past!

Frantic, last minute Christmas shopping is nothing new, however at the end of World War I, American troops began arriving home in December.  For many families, it was the perfect Christmas gift. Decemeber 2, 1918

In December of 1945, local businesses in Jackson, like those all across the United States, were expressing the nation’s relief that World War II was over.  Like two and half decades before, peace was the greatest gift of all.December 24, 1945
