Voices in The Attic
Speaker: Carleton Young, PhD, author and history professor
Imagine clearing out your family attic and discovering an enormous collection of letters written by two soldiers during the Civil War, but not knowing why the letters were there. Faced with that situation, Carleton Young spent more than a decade visiting battlefields and researching the two soldiers. He tells the story of two brothers who witnessed and made history by fighting in many of the most famous battles of the Civil War, and then preserving that history through their surprisingly detailed and insightful letters.
