Lawrence Van Alstyne and his book, Diary of an Enlisted Man

Saturday, Jun 22, 2013 10:30a to 11:30a

Lawrence Van Alstyne descended from Hudson Valley Dutch settlers who had owned slaves. When he enlisted with the 128th. New York Volunteers, Lawrence's views on the slavery question were contradictory and confused. And yet, by the war's end, he was an officer commanding a regiment of freed Louisiana slaves, the 60th. United States Colored Infantry. This program will be presented by historian Steve Trimm of Grant Cottage. Registration is recommended
