'This Wicked Rebellion' Book Talk in Waunakee
Drawing from more than 11,000 letters in the Wisconsin Historical Society's Civil War collection, "This Wicked Rebellion: Wisconsin Civil War Soldiers Write Home" gives a unique and intimate glimpse of the men and women who took part in the War for the Union. Follow Wisconsin soldiers as they sign up or get drafted, endure drill and picket duty, and get their first experiences of battle. Join them as they fight desperation and fear, encounter the brutality of slavery, and struggle with the reasons for war.
Editor John Zimm will speak to the Janesville Civil War Roundtable about 'This Wicked Rebellion.'
A book signing will follow. Zimm has worked for the Wisconsin Historical Society Press since 2002. His articles for the "Wisconsin Magazine of History" include "On to Montezuma’s Halls: The Story of Alexander Conze" and "Wisconsin's Historic Windmills."
