Grange Lyceum: “Glory Days: The Diary of Whallonsburg Farmer Charles Stafford”
February 24, 2015 @ 7:30 pm| $5
The spring lyceum series at the Whallonsburg Grange begins with two history lectures by UVM professor Andy Buchanan. Attendance $5 per lecture; students attend free.
On Tuesday, Febrary 24 at 7:30 Mr. Buchanan will present “Glory Days: The Diary of Whallonsburg Farmer Charles Stafford.” The events that helped shape Whallonsburg come to life in the pages of Stafford’s daily diary entries, which date from the 1850s and 1860s. Stafford’s writing is a window into the social and cultural influences, political developments, war clouds, changes in technology and rural life at a time when Whallonsburg was a thriving town.
