Amazing and fascinating story – thanks for reminding us of this important history!
Scott Hudson- Please don’t call what happened between David Dickson and a 12 year old child a “relationship”. Set history right and call it what it was: child sexual abuse and rape.
My comment was submitted before the Augusta Press made the decision to edit the article to more accurately represent the truth of what happened to Julie. I commend their willingness to reconsider and set the record straight. Bravo!
Historic Augusta did a great job ensuring the restoration of the house – currently home of The Hock Development firm. Glad to see the building put to good reuse and stewardship.
Did you know Kevin de I’ Aigle ancestors donated Cedar Grove Cemetery to the city!
I love history. Thanks. The right decision was made by the courts.
