I really like Google books
Ok, most who have wandered around downtown Winston-Salem have probably noticed the Forsyth Country Confederate Memorial on the northwest corner of the old courthouse square. But now I know, courtesy of Google books, that the first moving picture ever shown in Forsyth County (1903) was shown to raise money for this statue (see Piedmont Soldiers and Their Families, by Cindy H. Casey). For the record (and on that basis not totally unrelated), Winston-Salem's new independent cinema is now open.
