The Harvard Historical Society Invites You to Discover Your Town

Harvard Historical Society Annual Meeting
December 4, 2014 at 7PM

Please join us for the Harvard Historical Society's Annual Meeting which is open to the
public. After a brief business meeting there will be a series of talks given by the
Massachusetts Volunteer re-enactors describing present insights into life during
the Civil War.

Re-enactors Revisit
The 28th Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry re-enactors, who held an encampment on the
town Common last June, will return to Harvard on Thursday, Dec. 4, to speak at the
Historical Society's annual meeting. Following a short business meeting at 7 p.m.,
members of the 28th MVI will present insights into life during the Civil War. Father Preble, chaplain, will talk about post-war issues, including PTSD, and Tracie Wilkins of the
Irish Soldiers' Relief Society will discuss the role of civilians, particularly women.
Pvt. Tyler Wilkins will describe the daily routine of a soldier during the war, dispelling misconceptions and reporting the actual details of their lives. Refreshments will follow the presentation.

The meeting is open to all. 215 Still River Road, Harvard, MA.
