(Host) Every community’s history is unique, but there are events that tie all of Vermont’s towns together: like the Civil War.
Nearly 35-thousand young men marched off to fight for the Union. Many didn’t return.
Among the events at this weekend’s annual History Expo at the Tunbridge Fairgrounds, is a chance to wander through a nearby cemetery to hear the stories of the civil war veterans buried there.
VPR’s Steve Zind joined one of the tour guides, whose connection to these stories is a personal one.
(Farnham) “I’m Euclid Farnham and I’m President of the Tunbridge Historical Society …
…people live fascinating lives.”
(Host) Euclid Farnham will help lead a guided tour of Civil War graves in the Tunbridge village cemetery Sunday at noon as part of the Vermont History Expo.
