Battles of the Civil War

The Corinth Free Library invites the public to attend a two part program discussing two key battles of the Civil War. The program features teacher Greg Baker of the Corinth Central School and features images as well as discussion. The program will start on Tuesday April 5 with the Battle of Antietam and conclude Tuesday April 12 with the Battle of Gettysburg. Both programs are at 7pm at the Corinth Free Library.
This program is made possible by a gift awarded to the library through the We the People Bookshelf national grant project. The library was one of 4,000 libraries across the country selected to receive a We the People Bookshelf grant, which provided free hardcover editions of 17 classic books on the theme of “A More Perfect Union.” The library also received bonus materials, including a DVD edition of “The Civil War,” the award-winning documentary by Ken Burns. The grant was awarded by the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) in cooperation with the American Library Association. Funding for this program was also provided by The Friends of the Corinth Free Library.
