Lake County Civil War Round Table Meeting-- Part 1: A Great Book

Last Thursday, I went over to Grayslake, Illinois, and attended the meeting of the Lake County Civil War Round Table at the Grayslake Heritage Museum in downtown.

I arrived early and found the Grayslake Library and checked it out.  I bought a CD by blues singer Anson Funderburgh and an excellent book "The Rebel Yell & the Yankee Hurrah: The Civil War Journal of a Maine Volunteer, Private John W. Haley, 17th Maine Regiment."  Edited by Ruth L. Silliker.

This could very well be one of the best diaries/journals written during the war and I have already enjoyed reading some of the accounts.

These were offered by the Friends of the Grayslake Library which has a wall of great books and CDs, etc..
