“Jim Phillips’ program at the Tupper Lightfoot Memorial Library will focus on Antebellum Alabama,” Trawick said. “He will bring artifacts that date before the Civil War. Jim Phillips is from Birmingham. He is the brother of Dough Phillips of Alabama Public Television’s ‘Discovering Alabama.’ He’s not the Antiques Road Show but he will look at a few coins, bottles and tokens if you bring them.”

Trawick said Antebellum Alabama will be an interesting and informative program.

“We are fortunate to have Jim Phillips share his love of history and his fascinating stories with us,” she said. “We invite all of those who love history and Alabama to join us for this special presentation.”
