Lecture at museum to tell story of boy’s account of the Civil War

Editor Janet E. Croon will talk about "The War Outside My Window: The Civil War Diary of LeRoy Wiley Gresham"

LeRoy Wiley Gresham was 12 when he started the diary. He followed the war closely and intelligently, tracking the actions of both the Army of Northern Virginia and Army of Tennessee. He kept up with naval activity, too, as the South tried constantly to run the Union blockade. The record he left of everyday life on the Confederate home front is punctuated by insightful commentary on military, political and economic matters that is extraordinary coming from one so young.
