Meet the Author: A Celebration of Local History at CCHS
WhenEvent has ended
Cortland County Historical Society
25 Homer Ave
Please join us to meet local and regional authors at Cortland County Historical Society on Saturday, December 2 from 11am to 1pm.
The following authors will be here to sign copies of their latest books:
Edmund J. Raus, Jr.: "The Cortland County, New York, Homefront During the Civil War"
• The Civil War left no family in America untouched. If your ancestors lived in Cortland County, this book is an important resource for understanding Cortland County’s involvement in the Civil War as well as a genealogical gold mine for researchers.
Adrienne Morris: "By the Shores of Solon Pond"
• Farm boy Waldo Potter strives to save his father’s impoverished upstate New York acreage as drums of war beat. By the Shores of Solon Pond captures the joys and hardships of rural life and is a tribute to Cortland County’s rural heritage, but, most of all, it is a tribute to one young man’s sacrificial love for his family.
These books will be available to purchase, and you may also choose from other items in our gift shop. We have expanded our offerings to include local and regional books, gift items, and children’s toys. Remember to shop small this holiday season and support Cortland County Historical Society, the place where your memories come to endure for the future.
A new temporary exhibit featuring Cortland County and the Civil War will open on December 2 to accompany this event.
