Civil war historian talks about Ninth Vermont Regiment

Saturday, March 11, 2 p.m.—BELMONT—The Mount Holly Town Library will be sponsoring a Vermont Humanities Council Program Saturday, March 11 at its location, 26 Maple Hill Road, Belmont. The program, titled  “One Regiment’s Story in the Civil War: The Ninth Vermont, 1862–1865” will be presented at 2 p.m.
From guarding confederate prisoners incarcerated at Camp Douglas, Ill., to the woods of coastal North Carolina and finally to the gates of Richmond, Va., the Ninth Vermont Regiment earned a reputation of being well-disciplined and steadfast under fire. Although lacking the renown of other Vermont units, it represented the state well throughout its history.
Civil War historian Donald Wickman offers listeners tales of the Ninth Vermont, highlighted by the stories of some of the 1,878 Vermonters who comprised it, as it became one of the most traveled regiments in the federal army.
This event is free, open to the public, and accessible to those with disabilities. Snacks and refreshments will be provided. For more information, call 802-259-3707.
