Book Signing: John David Smith

November 13, 2019 - 3:00 PM to 4:00 PM

Come join us as Center faculty member John David Smith signs his new book, Dear Delia The Civil War Letters of Captain Henry F. Young, Seventh Wisconsin Infantry (University of Wisconsin Press, 2019), on campus next Wednesday at 3PM in the Popp Martin Student Union. 

“This revealing collection of letters is one of the best windows one will ever find into the everyday reality and the horror of the Civil War. Larson and Smith illuminate this remarkable story; the letters themselves take us deep into Young's values, honesty, racial views, contempt for slackers and civilians, and almost unfathomable determination to stay to the end to save the Union.”
—David W. Blight, author of Frederick Douglass: Prophet of Freedom
