Historical Society Hosts “Vermont and the Civil War” on May 6

Submitted by Betsy Tonkin

Sunday, May 6th
1:00 PM
Plymouth Town Hall

“VERMONT AND THE CIVIL WAR”

Sponsored by: the Vermont Humanities Council
Hosted by: the Plymouth Historical Society

Please join Historical Society members, friends and neighbors for an afternoon of history and socialization.

A seventh generation Vermonter, Howard Coffin is an author of three books on the Civil War: Vermonters In The War; Nine Months To Gettysburg; And The Battered Stars, as well as Guns Over The Champlain Valley.

After Howard Coffin’s lecture, he will entertain questions and will also hold a book signing for those interested in purchasing one of his books.

Light refreshments will be provided after the presentation. The Historical Society will have souvenirs for sale and encourages everyone to become a member. Membership is $5 for an individual and $10 for a family, among other membership levels.

The presentation is free, and donations to the Historical Society would be happily and gratefully accepted in helping the Historical Society to attain its goal of $2,200 for the purchase of a new computer, printer/scanner and “Past Perfect” software needed to catalog and digitize the Historical Society’s assets. The Historical Society’s current computer system is outdated and not compatible with today’s modern technologies.

We hope to see everyone there!
