Catawba College’s Dr. Gary Freeze, professor of history, has been involved in several research projects during the past few months, with a focus on military history and local heritage.
This summer, Freeze served as consultant and facilitator for the production and presentation of an art film on the American Revolution in the North Carolina back country. The film, “Troublous Times,” written and directed by local armorer Luther Sowers, premiered to a packed house at the Rowan Public Library in September.
Freeze will premiere the next installment in his “Ramble Through Rowan History” series in October; this episode will be about the Civil War in Salisbury.
He has also begun planning for a symposium on North Carolina’s role in the War of 1812, which he will host in conjunction with the State Department of Archives and History next spring in Salisbury. In addition, he will complete his ‘multi-front efforts’ next spring with a presentation at UNC-Charlotte on “Pro-German Sentiment in North Carolina’s Lutheran Counties During World War One.”

That evening, the band traveled to North Forsyth High School to compete against 13 other bands. The Cougars placed second in their class, received a superior rating and placed second overall.
The JCHS Marching Band’s theme this year is “Land of the Free,” which takes listeners on a journey of the history of America. The first movement is about independence and the New Frontier. The second movement salutes the fallen soldier, and the third movement is a celebration of America.
The Carson band was nominated by U.S. Rep. Richard Hudson to represent the state of North Carolina in the 2014 Memorial Day Parade in Washington D.C.
The parade will be televised nationally and will attract hundreds of thousands of spectators along the parade route. Students will have the opportunity to visit memorials and museums and will participate in a special wreath laying ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknown at Arlington National Cemetery.
