Litchfield County and the Civil War - Author Talk with Peter Vermilyea

The history of Litchfield County highlights the challenges Northern communities faced during the Civil War. Union victory was far from guaranteed. Armed confrontation erupted over the flying of secession flags. Supporting the war effort provided women with skills and experiences that would aid in the suffrage movement.

Author Peter C. Vermilyea uses first-hand accounts - many never published before- to investigate these events and show how the process of preparing for war created a lasting bond between its community and its soldiers. Join us for a special talk and book signing at the Library!
