Civil War Author Talk
March 2, 2023 @ 6:00 pm EST
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. After Q&A, Truesdell will sign copies of her book which will be available for purchase for $30 each.
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, with donations at the door gratefully accepted to support Lincoln County Historical Association’s ongoing efforts to preserve and share the objects and stories of our local history with the public.
