The 1975 Madison’s Heritage collection contains many articles about pioneers and Indians. Other articles profile some Madison’s county government officials. Several articles give accounts of some of Madison County’s most important institutions, banks. “Waco in 1889,” “Flour Power” (about Potts’ Bonanza Mill), and “Madison’s Master Drummer” in turn continue the themes of villages, early businesses, and the African American and military heritage of the county. “Fire Bell Found” is one of the most outstanding instances of reader input and the interactive element of Madison’s Heritage. “Innocent Bystander was Slain” and “A Fatal Drink” recount some unfortunate accidents in our county’s history.
