A Civil War Christmas (virtual)
Dec 2, 2021 @ 7:00 pm
This virtual presentation, accompanied by a slideshow, discusses the experiences of the Civil War soldier during the Christmas seasons of 1861 – 1865. Away from home, soldiers celebrated the season in different ways together in camp on the march and on the battlefield. The program will also discuss how Christmas was celebrated in the Civil War period on the home-front and the many differences in relation to how the holiday is celebrated today. Come join historical reenactor, lecturer and tour guide Michael Jesberger for a discussion on one of our favorite holidays and traditions. Co-sponsored by the Friends of the Lawrence Branch, Friends of the West Windsor Branch, Friends of the Hopewell Branch, Friends of the Hickory Corner Branch, and the Hightstown Library Association.
