A word, or two, from your President:
Many thanks to all who attended our March 5 th meeting. A large turnout of members and guests were both entertained and instructed on the important role music and popular songs played during “The War to End All Wars.”
Special thanks as well to our outstanding presenter, Dean Poulsen, for an excellent and informative program of music and song. Our talented audience also performed the “sing-alongs” in fine voice!
Thanks again to all for a most interesting and successful afternoon!
Author and historian Joanne Hamilton Rajoppi will speak at the annual Union County Historical Society Luncheon on April 2 nd . A Vice President and a Trustee of the Society, Joanne will speak about her newest book, Northern Women in the Aftermath of the Civil War.
Northern Women tells the story of the perseverance and stamina of women facing an altered world, many of whom were confronted by widowhood, burdened with returning soldiers addicted to alcoholism and drugs, or strained by the care of men suffering from post-traumatic stress.
Northern Women follows Joanne’s 2013 book, New Brunswick and the Civil War: The Brunswick Boys and the Great Rebellion. Both books will be available for purchase at the luncheon.
Thank you, and please know we appreciate your continued support!
