Civil War Show and Tell In Canton Nov 19th


By on

silas write houseThe next North Country Civil War Round Table will be held on Sunday, November 19th, at 2 pm at the St. Lawrence County Historical Association. Rather than featuring an in-depth lecture on an aspect of the war, visitors who own items with provenance to the Civil War period are invited to bring them to the event for a “show and tell” session.

Local Civil War military expert Dixie Dave Ellis will be on hand to help identify artifacts brought by participants. Show-and-tell objects do not need to be military in nature: documents and stories are welcome.

The St. Lawrence County Historical Association at the Silas Wright House is open Tuesday through Thursday noon to 4 pm, Friday noon to 6 pm, and Saturday 10 am to 4 pm  Admission to the museum is free; admission to the archives is free for members and children, $2.50 for college students, and $5 for the general public. The St. Lawrence County Historical Association is located at 3 E. Main St., Canton.  Parking is available in the back of the SLCHA, next to the museum’s main entrance.

The St. Lawrence County Historical Association is a membership organization open to anyone interested in St. Lawrence County history.  For more information, or to become a member, call the SLCHA at (315) 386-8133 or e-mail info@slcha.org. Civil War Round Table programs are made possible in part by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
