Carolyn Ivanoff, Civil War Historian, returns to share her knowledge about the French family and their amazing story of the Civil War: living through and surviving those difficult and extraordinary years. The talk is based on almost 600 letters of Captain Wilson French, Company G, 17th Connecticut Volunteers, his beloved wife Martha Bouton French, and the remarkable journey of those letters through the generations.  Captain French was wounded at Gettysburg, captured, and paroled.  Through his letters to his beloved wife, and hers to him, his strong character as a good officer and a good man shine through all his trials and hard service.
