Title: Voice from the Civil War, Living History Presentation

Because a grieving mother saved the Civil War letters her son wrote home from his service in the 89th NY, Eileen Patch of Endwell, NY inherited them. She transcribed, researched and annotated the 59 letters. Dressed as her great grandmother, Sarah Englis in historically accurate 1880s clothes, Ms. Patch will look back 20 years to the war and read excerpts from the soldier's letters.

The book, published by Broome County Historical Society, will be available for purchase. It is entitled This from George, which was the soldier's favorite closing of his letters. Ms. Patch will sign books after the meeting.
