Next to Normal is an unflinching look at a suburban family struggling with the effects of mental illness. Dad's an architect; Mom rushes to pack lunches and pour cereal; their daughter and son are bright, wise-cracking teens, appearing to be a typical American family. And yet their lives are anything but normal because the mother has been battling manic depression for sixteen years. Next to Normal takes audiences into the minds and hearts of each character, presenting their family's story with love, sympathy and heart. This deeply moving piece of theatre is an emotional powerhouse that addresses such issues as grieving a loss, ethics in modern psychiatry, and suburban life. Winner of three 2009 Tony Awards and the 2010 Pulitzer Prize.

Summertime is one of the busiest times-harvesting spring vegetables while tending to the summer plants. Daily maintenance of the garden begins in the early morning picking the insects off the plants, hoeing, and pulling weeds. Mules and farmers are out in the fields cultivating the crops. In the heat of the day, the family settles in the cool breezeways to do equally important hand work. Warmer weather means easier traveling on dirt roads, so quilting bees and visits with neighbors are more frequent, including Saturday evening's pickin' parties.

This attack resulted in the near destruction of the Federal supply base at Johnsonville. This year's event will take place between two Tennessee State Parks, with a Federal encampment at Johnsonville State Historic Park in Humphreys County and a Confederate encampment at Nathan Bedford Forrest State Park located in Benton County. Both parks will feature artillery, infantry and civilian demonstrations throughout the day. The Battle of Johnsonville is the only historical event in the country to have two state parks dedicated to its remembrance.
