The North Country Civil War Round Table, sponsored by the St Lawrence County Historical Association, is an informal discussion group that centers on the Civil War period. Each meeting focuses on a particular topic related to the Civil War and emphasizes the North Country's role in that turbulent era. The Round Table is free and open to the pubic and light refreshments will be served.
Edgar Crane (1841-1913) was a member of the 60th New York Infantry who returned to his native Stockholm, New York after the war. While his life moved on past the conflict, the letters he wrote to his family at home remain to illustrate the perspective of an ordinary soldier on the government and military politics, as well as his more personal concerns.
Learn more about Crane and his letters when Stan Maine speaks at the next North Country Civil War Round Table on Sunday, October 30th, 2 pm at the Stockholm History Center in Winthrop. The History Center is located in the back of the Stockholm Municipal Building, 607 Route 11C, Winthrop. Stan Maine lives in Pierrepont and serves as a buy cialis online trustee for the St&nbps;Lawrence County Historical Association.
