CONWAY — The Conway Historical Society meeting tonight at the Salyards Center (lower level) will feature Bill Marvel, well known local and Civil War historian, who will speak on New Hampshire in the Civil War. Bill will discuss how the Granite State responded to the war — who served, who didn’t, and why. Included will be an overview of the social and economic impact on citizens who served, as well as on those who remained at home.
Bill is an independent scholar focusing primarily on mid-19th-century American History. He is the author of 14 published books and has another in production. He is currently working on his next book about the history of the town of Conway in the Civil War.
A pot luck dinner begins at 6 p.m., so please bring a dish (entree, salad, side or dessert) to share if you plan to participate. A brief business meeting will begin at 7 p.m., with the speaker immediately following. The public is welcome and admission is free.
