Local Author Talk:
A. J. Schenkman
Thursday, June 2, 7:00 pm
Did you know that approximately 200,000 children joined the army during the Civil War, and over 400 women disguised themselves to join the fight? Many of these stories have gone unheard, until now…
Local author and Town of Gardiner Historian, A.J. Schenkman, will be at the Library to discuss his new book Unexpected Bravery. During his presentation, Schenkman will share the stories of the women and children who attempted to make a difference in the epic struggle to determine the future of the United States of America during the Civil War. Hear the story of Susie King Taylor, a thirteen year-old African American, who served as a nurse; Johnny Clem, a ten-year-old drummer boy; Mary Galloway, a seventeen-year old who fought on the battlefield; and more.
Registration is required.
