Huntsville History Museum Joins NPS Reconstruction Era Network
The museum, located inside Harrison Brothers Hardware, features an exhibit chronicling the story of the Brandons- father Henderson and son Daniel. The two were Black men who gained respect and prominence for their entrepreneurial efforts in mid-1800s to early 1900s society in Huntsville.
The Reconstruction Era Network aims to preserve U.S. locations and stories that tell the story of this crucial transition from slavery to freedom in the aftermath of Civil War.
Katy Ganaway talks with guests Donna Castellano, HHF's executive director, and Nathan Betcher, Supervisory Historian with the Reconstruction Era National Historical Park in Beaufort County, South Carolina.
