Special Event–Civil War Presentation with Denis Hambucken, Chris Benedetto & Matt Payson

Saturday, June 30 (4:00PM-6:00PM)

TAMWORTH, NH–Denis Hambucken has co-written two books on the Civil War from both the Union and Confederate side (with Chris Benedetto and Matt Payson, respectively). Rather than dealing with politics or tactics, these books focus on the daily life of the men who risked their life in defense of their homes and ideals. All three authors will be at the Remick Country Doctor Museum & Farm on Saturday, June 30, from 4:00pm to 6:00pm to present an immersive, highly interactive, and family-friendly program including information on New Hampshire’s contribution to the war effort. You will see a soldier from each camp in full uniform, but be careful–there may be actual musket fire (no bullets, of course), along with a number of artifacts on display. A few lucky youngsters will get a chance to try out some of the clothing and equipment. Weather permitting, this will be an indoor/outdoor event, with a Civil War campsite set up. This being the Remick Museum & Farm, we will, of course, have Civil War-era food to sample. Co-sponsored with the Cook Memorial Library, books will be available for sale and signing.

From the back cover of the Union Soldier book:
“As the year 1862 began, the war that most Americans thought would only last a few months showed no signs of ending. Hundreds of thousands of men across the divided nation enlisted in state volunteer regiments that poured into the sprawling military camps around Washington, D.C., Richmond, Virginia, and other strategic locations. Within a year, thousands of these courageous men had lost their lives on bloody battlefields or died in disease-ridden encampments. This book provides a glimpse of the lives, weapons, and
equipment of these soldiers through a collection of artifacts and exacting reproductions.”

This event is free and open to the public.
