Civil War Letters Presentation

Illinois State Military Museum

Mark Flotow will give a presentation about Illinois Civil War soldiers' descriptions of combat, from guerrilla warfare to large-scale battles, through their personal letters. He also will delve into the reasons why soldiers wrote about their combat experiences. Audience members will be invited to serve as "past voices" by reading aloud some of the letter quotations.
