BEHIND THE LINES
September 21, 2017
The Puget Sound Civil War Roundtable will sponsor a distinctly different event Thursday, September 21st at 6:30 p.m. at the Bellevue Library (1111 110th Avenue NE, Bellevue (425) 450-1765). The presenter will be author, Joanne Rajoppi who will be discussing her book, Northern Women in the Aftermath of the Civil War: The Wives and Daughters of the Brunswick Boys. Some of the characters Ms. Rajoppi’s will talk about have very strong ties to Washington and the Pacific Northwest.
This will be the first in a series of lectures called Behind the Lines that is concerned with how 19th century women struggled to survive as their men returned broken, weary and depressed. Its a tribute to their fortitude for continuing to raise their children, work their farms and keep their families together in the face of death and uncertainty.
