On Saturday November 9 at 2 p.m. at the Dairy Building, Tim Pletkovich, author of Civil War Fathers: Sons of the Civil War in World War II, will present a program based on his book.  Civil War Fathers is the story of eight American families whose fathers fought in the Civil War and whose sons and daughters fought in World War II. Based on interviews with the surviving WWII veterans, the book views the Civil War through the eyes of children listening to their fathers’ stories, and World War II through the eyes of the same children as grown-up participants.

This free program is sponsored by the Bishop Hill Heritage Association.  The Dairy Building is located at 410 North Erickson in Bishop Hill, IL.  For more details, call 309 927-3899, email bhha@mymctc.net, or check out our website at www.bishophillheritage.org.
