Explore the fascinating story of Long Island’s role in the war between the States. Although no battles were fought here, the war touched the lives of everyone who lived here between 1861-1865. This talk, illustrated with period images, discusses the local reaction to the war, the units in which Long Islanders served and the home-front activities which supported the boys in blue. Registration begins Monday, January 7th at the Reference Desk.
