Troy in the Civil War

Wednesday, December 9th at 6:15 pm
Main Library

Michael Barrett, Executive Director of the Hudson Mohawk Industrial Gateway will be presenting a talk about Troy in the Civil War.

civil warUndoubtedly Troy’s most vigorous and influential period were the decades leading up to and including the years of the American Civil War.  Strong pre-war abolition fervor and the riotous escaped slave incident of 1860 helped to shape the national consciousness.  Her bustling industries and prominent military and political personalities did much to further the Federal war effort.   Her soldiers bore the burden of participating in every major battle, and avenged both the first and the last great casualties of the war.  This slide-illustrated lecture is not a military history, but rather, it is a true story about the people and events that made a city great.

This program is free and open to the public. Registration is suggested.  For more information and to register call the library at 274-7071 or Register online.
