Fall for the Book & Fairfax City: Voices from the Attic:  The Williamstown Boys in the Civil War

Historian and author Carleton Young spent a decade retracing the steps of two Vermont brothers whose 250+ letters were found in a trunk in his parents' attic. Through the detailed letters, researching the many military campaigns the brothers witnessed and fought in, and walking in their footsteps, Young will present a compelling story of ordinary Civil War soldiers. His book of the same title will be available for sale and signing. Learn more about the event here.
