Talk on Shenandoah Life during Civil War

Mr. Troy D. Marshall will present an illustrated lecture on "Valley Citizenry and the Civil War". Many people are aware of the battles that occurred in the Shenandoah Valley, but may not know much about what the citizens of the area went through at that time. The program will include information gleaned from citizens' diaries, letters, and other documents.

Mr. Marshall is the Supervisor of Historical Interpretation at the New Market Battlefield State Historical Park and a long-time Civil War Historian.

This library-sponsored talk will take place on SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 24th at 10: AM at the Orkney Rescue Squad Building on Route 263 (Orkney Grade Road) between Bryce resort and Orkney Springs - across from Blue Ridge Truss Company

Frank Walcroft is the organizer of the monthly lecture series sponsored by the Basye Orkney Community Library.
