The Clinton County Historical Association Announces “Clinton County’s Civil War Soldiers” Tuesday, August 9th, 6:30 pm at the Lake Forest Senior Living Community, 8 Lake Forest Drive, Plattsburgh
Back by popular demand, Julie Dowd will present stories and pictures of our County’s Civil War veterans. Many Clinton County residents are descended from the over 5,000 men who enlisted here for the Civil War. Her presentation will show how you can use free online resources to find your own Civil War ancestors.
For the last four years, Julie has been adding vignettes of Civil War veterans daily to the Clinton County Historical Association's Facebook page - Clinton County, NY, Civil War Record - 1861 to 1865. Learn more about our soldiers who mustered at the Plattsburgh Barracks and other places and how they participated in all theatres of the War of the Rebellion.
The event is free and open to the public.
