Join us for this library program on Saturday, November 16th at 2:00 pm. Dennis P. Bielewicz will present his background story leading up to the publication of Heroes in the Attic. Special focus will include the finding of Civil War related documents that fostered the will to research the military and personal stories of Hiram Seymour Hall and Benjamin S. Coffin. These men, college students, organized their student colleagues to leave college before graduation to train as volunteer soldiers at the beginning of the Civil War. Bielewicz will then detail their training, service in over twenty battles, their discharge from the military and the course that their adult lives took. Registration is required and begins 10/26. Please call 617-6181 to register.
