Program Description

Event Details

Some family stories are far more important than they seem on the surface. Connections to people may be lost, events toned down, rationales forgotten. In this presentation we start with a social disruption (the Civil War), a motivation (The Homestead Act) and the story of a fight between farmers. Then, with some research, we’ll weave it all together and learn that sometimes a simple fight over a fence was something more, something darker. Presented by Dan Hubbard.

Sponsored in part by the DuPage County Genealogical Society.
