The Life and Times of the Civil War Soldier

Lecture by Chris Benedetto

 

Chris Benedetto has studied the lives and times of Civil War soldiers for more than two decades, and traces his passion for American history back to his ancestor Charles Jones of Deerfield, NH who fought at Gettysburg. He has been an active member of the 5th New Hampshire Volunteers living history unit since 1993, and in 2012 co-authored the book Union Soldier of the American Civil War: A Visual Reference. Chris will share some of his original letters and photos of New Hampshire soldiers and the amazing stories they tell about their experiences in the war.

 

After earning degrees in history from Wheaton College and Brown University, Chris worked for the National Park Service and has taught history courses at Granite State College since 2009. In 2013, he was presented with a "Good Steward" Award from the Campus Compact for New Hampshire for his continuing contributions to community education and historical preservation.
