Civil War Women of Compassion, Courage, and Grit


Sunday March 10, 2019
2:00 PM
Rich Rosenthal, president of the North Jersey Civil War Round Table, has lectured on numerous historical subjects. He was a founding member of the North Jersey American Revolution Round Table, along with pre-eminent New Jersey historian John T. Cunningham. Mr. Rosenthal will tell stories of wartime survival--not from cannons and bullets--but from life itself. Meet New Jersey's own Cornelia Hancock, who defiantly goes to Gettysburg after being rejected as a nurse for being too pretty; Mary Ann Bickerdyke, who sets up hospitals and kitchens, even following General Sherman through the mountains of Georgia on the way to Atlanta; and Sara Pryor, living through privation and destruction of the south, still has the courage to defy General Sheridan and demand rations for the starving families in her community.


This program is supported by the Friends of the Library and is free to the public. No registration is required.
