Library Program: A Soldier's Mother Tells Her Story

Speaking as Betsey Phelps, the mother of a Union soldier from Amherst, New Hampshire who died heroically at the Battle of Gettysburg, Sharon Wood offers an informative and sensitive reflection on that sacrifice from a mother's perspective. Wood blends the Phelps boy's story with those of other men who left their New Hampshire homes to fight for the Union cause and of the families who supported them on the home front. 

This presentation will also include stories of Bedford men who fought in the Civil War.

This program is made possible in part by a grant from New Hampshire Humanities
