Meredith Historical Society is to present a program on women of the Civil War

MEREDITH — All are invited to the season's first presentation of the Meredith Historical Society at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, May 5 at Meredith Bay Colony Club where David Decker, Civil War Historian, will discuss "Women in the Civil War" and use a Power Point presentation to highlight details.

History classes may discuss Molly Pitcher and her role in the Civil War, but positive documentation also proves that at least two hundred and fifty other women are known to have fought on the Union and Confederate sides. Decker will skillfully explain why he believes it is likely that the number of women who donned soldiers' clothing is closer to four hundred, possibly up to one thousand female soldiers.

Decker is a retired lawyer and avid Civil War buff. He is an eighteen year member of the Civil War Round Table and has lectured throughout New England on many topics related to the Civil War.

This event is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served. For more information, contact 279-2275.
