The Civil War without Proper Names, Dates and Battles
Wednesday, September 19
The focus of this presentation is on photography (then and now), maps, inventions, reenacting (living history), genealogy, etc. Gary Blessman, a resident of Crystal since 2001, discovered the discharge papers of his gr-gr-grandfather from the 126th Ill. Inf. and began researching his ancestor’s regimental history. He has self-published two regimental histories and has spoken on the Civil War to audiences such as MENSA, Sr. Adult church groups, public schools and historical societies. Register by September 14.
