Civil War (AD 1861-AD 1865)
Civil War (AD 1861-AD 1865) By Maureen Esther, HistoryTeller
Two presentation times offered:
10:00 am OR 7:00 pm
Mills Community House-Upper Level
Home of BPL, 891 Michigan Ave., Benzonia
From Abe Lincoln to “the littlest soldier of them all”, this presentation covers the time in our history that split this nation in two. Highlighting a Union drummer boy’s life and the Michigan 22nd Infantry Regiment, this historical overview uses photography to show the people, places, and times that would change this country forever.
Maureen has been a Historyteller for 27 years in the Detroit area and is looking forward to bringing her love of Art and History to the Benzonia Public Library.
Refreshments provided. No charge for event, just come and enjoy. Sponsored by Friends of BPL. Information: 231-882-4111 or www.benzonialibrary.org.
