CCHS 72nd NY Infantry Lecture

The Civil War encampment will include a special lecture/presentation by author RICK BARRAM, who will come to Westfield from his home in California to discuss his research and book on the 72ND NEW YORK INFANTRY regiment, which was formed in Chautauqua County and participated in several noteworthy Civil War engagements.

Barram’s lecture will take place inside St. Peter's Episcopal Church, located next to the park. Following his lecture, members of the 9th NY Cavalry will continue the annual tradition of reading Civil War letters from local enlisted men. The event is free and open to the public.
