On the Homefront: Letters and Songs from the Civil War

Judy Cook takes the stage, in costume, to present this multi media collection. This program will focus on the letters written by Esther Claflin – the matriarch of a Wisconsin family trying to keep their farm functioning while the patriarch Gilbert is in the Civil War. Judy will read letters, play the tunes of the time and sing songs that were written and sung during the Civil War. The letters, images, and music combine to provide a fascinating insight into the home life in Middle America of the 1860s.
This program is funded in part by the NYS Council on the Arts Decentralization Regrant Program with support from Gov. Andrew Cuomo and the NYS Legislature and administered by the Cattaraugus County Arts Council.
This library-sponsored program is free and open to the public on Thursday, April 12th at 7 pm in the Nancy Howe Auditorium in Wellsville.
