Imagine clearing out your family attic and discovering hundreds of letters written during the Civil War. Join us as Dr. Carleton Young shares about being faced with that very situation. Not knowing why his family had the letters, Dr. Young used the resources of Ancestry.com and other sources to discover how two Vermont soldiers fit into his family heritage. Using excerpts from their letters, which are filled with in-depth accounts of battles and army life, Dr. Young has woven together their dramatic war-time narrative into the context of the war and adds in additional information about the friends and relatives who fought by their side. This event is free and open to the public.
