Civil War enthusiasts…..
We have a very special attraction coming-up soon in Hamburg! There will be a talk being held at the library right in town that should be of interest to ALL Civil War followers: the story of Battery L — with WNY connections! Please see the above announcement for details. The BCWRT is co-sponsoring the talk, but it IS free and open to the public.
Also, should you attend, parking is off a side-street (Union) from the library. It DOES land you very near the back library entrance however, which is where the meeting will take place.
