“Letters from the Civil War”

is the program for the November Town of

Ontario Historical and Landmark Preservation Society’s Potluck

Dinner and General Membership Meeting

Wednesday, November 18th, at 6:00 PM

Brick Church, 7200 Ontario Center Rd., Ontario, NY

The next Town of Ontario Historical and Landmark Preservation Society’s potluck dinner (Bring your own

place setting, coffee and tea will be provided.) and the general membership meeting will be held at the

North Ontario United Methodist Church (“Brick Church”), 7200 Ontario Center Rd., Ontario, NY on

Wednesday, November 18th, at 6:00 PM.

The program starts at 7:00 PM and will feature Sodus Point Historian Bruce Farrington presenting his

“Sodus Center Civil War Letters”. The Civil War Letters are an assortment of letters written to and from

folks in Sodus Center, New York. The Letters are dated from January 1861 to April 1865. These letters

are written from ordinary, rural folks living through an extraordinary time in our country’s history. They

give a different and somewhat surprising perspective of life in our area during the Civil War and a feeling

of what it actually was like – a feeling that is not captured in most historical accounts. After the program

there will be a general membership meeting.

*The public is welcome to attend both the dinner, program and the general meeting.
