      EVENT DETAILS
      Author Talk and Book Signing: Muskingum County in the Civil War

      Dr. Thomas W. Harvey will speak on the research and preparation of his new book based on Muskingum County people – Seeing the Elephant: One Man’s Return to the Horrors of the Civil War.

      The book is based on the true-life story of Thomas S. Armstrong of the 122nd Ohio Volunteer Infantry who though discharged following the Battle of Shiloh, re-enlisted only to be captured at the Battle of Winchester and then endured the hardships of Libby Prison.
      This talk will appeal to Civil War enthusiasts who want to hear the first-hand account of a common soldier, genealogists with ties to Union or Newton Townships, those aspiring authors who want to learn more about the process of converting facts and ideas to the printed page and anyone interested in a good story.

      The program is free and open to the public. Dr. Harvey will autograph books and will have a limited number of copies with him or you may purchase a copy from Amazon.com.
