This is a tintype I made of the gathering Sunday for the Ione Burden Symposium at the LSU Rural Life Museum. It was a wonderful day with great presentations on the history of media in the state. I had to follow Advocate cartoonist David Norwood, and he had the audience laughing at his cartoons through the decades.
I hope to attend the Springfield, La., reenactment this coming weekend. I'll probably just be there for Sunday.
