Storyteller - Jobe

I found seven historical markers along a 2 miles stretch of highway near my home. We are located between Nashville and Murfreesboro in a rural area with large horse farms and rolling hills.

In future posts, I'll share the stories from these historical markers with you and we'll explore them together.

This first marker is posted on my property. It tells the frightful story of Dewitt Smith Jobe; a Confederate Scout during the Civil War who was captured and tortured to death.
