"Rick Lank & Rebecca Rush are a team of dedicated researchers and story tellers that tell the tale of the final moments of the fallen South. We videotaped them at the recent Pennsylvania Association of Numismatics Convention in Pittsburgh on October 2021. PAN is a great group of people dedicated to the coin hobby and furthering numismatic education. Tom Uram and Patrick McBride are to thanked for all their help."
