Kevin Dougherty will be talking about and signing copies of his new book, Weapons of Mississippi, on Saturday, July 24 from 2 - 4 p.m. at the Barnes & Noble in Gulfport.
Weapons of Mississippi examines the roles weapons have played in twelve phases of state history. Dougherty, a history professor at the University of Southern Mississippi, not only offers technical background for these devices of weaponry but provides a unique lens for understanding the state's history.
Dougherty also updates the topic with a discussion of the modern naval shipbuilders on the Coast and interviews with hunters keen to pass on family traditions.
Weapons of Mississippi is now available from UPM.
