Amy Truesdell encore!

May 25, 2023 @ 5:30 pm EDT

We hosted Civil War author Amy Truesdell for an in-person lecture that was so good that we are bringing her back for our online audience! Don’t miss this talk! Registration Click here

Local author Amy Truesdell will discuss her new book, From Binghamton to the Battlefield: The Civil War Letters of Rollin B. Truesdell, which traces the Civil War experiences of her great-great-grandfather, an early enlistee in the Union Army. Using the 100+ letters Rollin penned for his family as a guide, Truesdell will share the arc of Rollin’s experience as he transformed from eager raw recruit to war-weary, battle-tested veteran.


Amy is a writer and consultant whose appreciation of family and cultural history led her to fulfill a long-held dream of narrating the Civil War experiences of her great-great-grandfather. Formerly she was a lead foreign affairs officer with the U.S. Department of State specializing in conflict resolution in Central and East Africa.


This talk is free and open to the public. Donations gratefully accepted to support LCHA’s ongoing work.
