The Clinton County Genealogical Society invites you to a lecture about Letters to Azel: Civil War Letters from Father to Son on June 25th at 7:30 pm in the Clinton County Historical Society Meeting Room.  This book, compiled by the Sabina Historical Society, is a treasure trove of information about a small Northern town during the time of the Civil War, from the weather to prices and the interest rate at the local bank, as well as his opinions as a War Democrat about the way the Civil War should be run.  Perhaps most interestingly, Mr. Crumley, employed at the Auditor’s Office, seems to know everyone in the county and their business — and relates it all to his son!  The book has an index of almost 400 names that are used in these letters, a great resource for local historians and genealogists in Southwest Ohio!

The program will be presented by Sabina Historical Society members Sharon Roberts, Joy Shoemaker and Susanne Kenney, and is free and open to the public.

Details: Free and open to the public

Location: Clinton County Historical Society, 149 E. Locust Street, Wilmington OH 45177
