Dr. David Coffey is chair of the department of History and Philosophy at the University of Tennessee at Martin. If the Civil War is one of your passions, you’ll love this episode where just one of the many topics is the six-volume American Civil War: The Definitive Encyclopedia and Document Collection to which Dr. Coffey contributed more than 40 entries. He also touches on other books, West Tennessee music, his contribution to Discovery Park and the favorite history-related vacation spots frequently visited by he and his wife, Dr. Julie Hill, when they aren’t working on their new historic event venue, Historic Ann’s 1893, in Union City.

Then discover just what goes into caring for the reptiles, fish and other animals from the Reelfoot Lake region who call Discovery Park home.
