ONE FAMILY'S CIVIL WAR LETTERS FOR GENERATIONS
Join the Historical Society of Easton as they will welcome back guest lecturer, Carolyn Ivanoff, Civil War historian and Housemaster at Shelton Intermediate School, as she shares her knowledge about the Wilson French Family and their amazing story of the Civil War on Sunday November 2nd at the Easton Public Library Community Room, 691 Morehouse Road, Easton from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM.
Carolyn Ivanoff will be our guide through almost 600 letters of Captain Wilson French of Company G, 17th Connecticut Volunteers and his beloved wife Martha Bouton French. Their correspondence during the Civil War provides a very intimate look into their lives and how they lived through and survived these extraordinary years.  
Captain French was wounded at Gettysburg, captured and paroled. Through his letters to his wife Martha and hers to him, we witness his strong character, learn what a good officer he was and see this good man shine through all his trials and hard service. The volume of letters written by this devoted couple provides unique insights into how the Civil War affected their lives and future generations.  
In 2003, Carolyn was named Civil War Preservation Trust's Teacher of the Year. She is deeply committed to developing historical programs which bring history to communities for all ages to enjoy.
For further information email the Historical Society of Easton at hseastonct@gmail.com, call 203-261-2090 or visit our website: http://historicalsocietyofeastonct.org/. The lecture is free but the Historical Society of Easton, a non-profit organization, always appreciates donations to support future programs.
