Historical Society of Haddonfield General Meeting
Local historian Joseph Wilson has spent years studying the Civil War through the first person accounts of his great, great Grandfather, Corporal George Garman of the 36th Pennsylvania Volunteer regiment. On Wednesday, May 23rd at 7:30 PM he will bring the story of Andersonville Prison to the General Meeting of the Historical Society of Haddonfield at Greenfield Hall. In addition to his talk, Joe has also accumulated a very large collection of Civil War relics, and will be bringing a few of these to share and to tell their stories at the meeting. A number of the Historical Society's holdings from the era should be available to view as well. A question and answer session will follow the talk.
The General Meeting is, as always, an excellent opportunity to join with fellow members and friends of the Society and enjoy their company within the gracious walls of Greenfield Hall. All are welcome to join in the hospitality and admission is free to members; a $5 donation is requested of non-members. Light refreshments will be served after the talk. We hope you will join us for an educational and entertaining evening.
