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.

CIVIL WAR VETERAN FUNERAL
James H. Powers, Jr.
The Puget Sound Civil War Roundtable, in conjunction with the Missing in America Project and the National Cemetery Administration, is planning a very special and unique event…the burial of a Civil War veteran, James H. Powers, Jr. and his wife of 57 years, Irene Powers.
James passed away in 1921 and Irene in 1928. Since that time, their ashes have languished at a local funeral home. Most recently, James and Loretta Dimond discovered their record and, working with the funeral home, the Veterans Administration and the family, received the release of the cremains and received permission to have them interned at Tahoma National Cemetery.
The event will take place on December 10, 2016 at noon. Please assist PSCWRT in publicizing the funeral. Links to Powers’ obituary, biography and the flyer announcing the funeral accompany this email.
Thank you for playing a role.
