    The Litchfield Historical Society is thrilled to welcome author Peter Vermilyea for a special talk on his newest book, Litchfield County and the Civil War on Sunday, June 2nd at 3:00 pm at the Litchfield History Museum. This lecture will also be streamed live via Zoom.

    With a Union victory far from guaranteed, northern communities faced challenges on multiple fronts. In his talk, Peace Men: Dissent in the Civil War, Vermilyea will examine the question of what role was there for men and women who did not wish to serve or openly opposed the Civil War.  

    In addition to being a valued Board Member of the Litchfield Historical Society, Peter C. Vermilyea teaches history at Housatonic Valley Regional High School in Falls Village, Connecticut. A graduate of Gettysburg College, he is the director of the student scholarship program at his alma mater's Civil War Institute. Vermilyea is the author of Hidden History of Litchfield County (The History Press, 2014), which received the 2015 CultureMax Award, and Wicked Litchfield County (The History Press, 2016), as well as more than two dozen articles, mostly on Civil War history. He lives in Litchfield, Connecticut, with his wife and two sons. 

    Copies of Litchfield County and the Civil War by Peter Vermilyea is now available for sale at the LHS Gift Shop and will be for sale at the lecture.
