FHC Education Committee volunteer Pat Lavin spent the past year transcribing Civil War letters to and from Mr. C.C. Esty, Chairman of Framingham’s Citizen’s Military Committee. The letters were so moving that she felt they could not go back on the shelf after the Civil War exhibition and so she published this book in time for upcoming 150th anniversary activities at the FHC. Pat did a tremendous amount of research to annotate the letters and put them in context of the war raging around these Framingham soldiers. We are so fortunate to have these letters now available in a legible and understandable context.
