Imagine clearing out your family attic and discovering hundreds of letters written during the Civil War. Faced with that situation, and not knowing why his family had the letters, Carelton Young used Ancestry.com and other sources to discover how two Vermont soldiers fit into his family heritage. Voices From the Attic: The Williamstown Boys in the Civil War is the story of two brothers who witnessed and helped to make history by fighting in the Peninsula Cam- paign, South Mountain, Antietam, Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, Gettysburg, the Wilderness, and Cedar Creek. They preserved that history through their surprisingly detailed and insightful letters that provide a valuable source of information from two soldiers that fought in America’s great Civil War.

Speaker Carelton Young will have copies of his book available to purchase after the talk.
