North Country Civil War Round Table to be held Sunday in Canton
CANTON -- The next North Country Civil War Round Table will be held Sunday, Nov. 19, at 2 p.m. at the St. Lawrence County Historical Association.
Rather than featuring an in-depth lecture on an aspect of the war, we invite visitors who own items with provenance to the Civil War period to bring them to the event for a “show and tell” session.Local Civil War military expert Dixie Dave Ellis will be on hand to help identify artifacts brought by participants. Show-and-tell objects do not need to be military in nature: documents and stories are welcome.
The SLCHA Gift Shop is a great way to take home Civil War history with books like Gallantry in the Field: Potsdam and the Civil War and New York's North Country and the Civil War. SLCHA members receive a 10 percent discount on most items in the gift shop.
The St. Lawrence County Historical Association at the Silas Wright House is open Tuesday through Thursday, noon-4 p.m., Friday, noon-6 p.m., and Saturday, 10a.m.-4 p.m.
Admission to the museum is free; admission to the archives is free for members and children, $2.50 for college students, and $5 for the general public.
The St. Lawrence County Historical Association is located at 3 E. Main St., Canton. Parking is available in the back of the SLCHA, next to the museum’s main entrance.
For more information, or to become a member, call the SLCHA at 315-386-8133 or e-mail [email protected].
