PRESENTATION on THE ST. ALBANS RAID
Thursday, June 11 at 6:30 p.m
In October 1864, approximately twenty-one Confederate soldiers took over St. Albans, Vermont. This northernmost land action of the Civil War ignited wartime fear and anger in every Northern state. The raiders fired on townspeople as they stole horses and robbed the local banks. St. Albans men organized to chase the Rebels out of town, and the perpetrators eventually stood trial in Canada, causing international ramifications for years to come.
On Thursday, June 11 at 6:30 p.m., Michelle Arnosky Sherburne will lead readers through the drama, triumph, and legacy of the Confederate raid as she discusses her research and her latest book.

The film will be followed by a discussion and refreshments. Free, all welcome.
Freedom & Unity: The Vermont Movie is a six-part collaborative documentary produced by several dozen Vermont-based filmmakers. Using personal stories, rare footage, interviews and original reenactments, the series explores the history and contemporary culture of our state–and how one small state has made a very big difference. Each part is 80 minutes long and it’s not necessary to see them in order.
