Photos by Jim Wolfe (c) 2000 Dr. Batson was the founder of Alabama Forge Council. I would like to thank Dr. Batson and Jock Dempsey of Anvilfire for letting me cover this event. The hospitality I received was warm and very supportive. Mrs. Batson, thanks for the directions and insight.

I learned a lot.
