Hugh Howard Book Talk

Nov. 5th (7 pm)

Hugh Howard Book Talk,
Author of Houses of Civil War America

Chappaqua Library


On Thursday evening, November 5, the New Castle Historical Society and the Chappaqua Public Library will jointly sponsor a book talk at the library by Hugh Howard, author of Houses of Civil War America. This wide-ranging survey, lavishly illustrated with photographs by Roger Straus III, includes familiar sites such as Lincoln’s home in Springfield, Illinois, and Robert E. Lee’s mansion, Arlington, now the centerpiece of the national cemetery. But it also covers less familiar and more modest homes such as Stonewall Jackson’s in Lexington, Virginia, and Frederick Douglass’s in Washington, D.C. And, not surprisingly, one of its chapters provides a detailed view of our own Horace Greeley house in Chappaqua.
