Elmer Ellsworth: The Most Talked About Man in the Country

Saturday, Apr 27, 2013 1:30p to 2:30p

John Hay, Abraham Lincoln's private secretary, made this claim not about Lincoln but of Elmer Ellsworth. How did the son of a poor tailor from Malta become the hero whose "picture sold like wild fire in every city in the land" and school girls dreamed over the graceful wave of his curls? Paul Perreault presents the story of the glorious but short career of Col. Elmer Ellsworth, the first Union Officer killed in the Civil War. Registration is required.
