Historical Society Guest Author

Historical Society Guest Author

11/08/2021 - 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm at Historical Society of Cheshire County
246 Main Street

Howard Mansfield is guest author at the Historical Society of Cheshire County on Monday, November 8th at 6pm. He will read from his new book Chasing Eden (released October 12) and discuss its connection to local history.

Event is free and open to the public via zoom and in-person. To register for the event please visit www.hsccnh.org.  Copies will be available for sale, and the author will be on hand for questions and autographs.

We are offering this event in a hybrid format:

In-person Event: Space is limited to 50 attendees.

Online Zoom Event: Please register to reserve your spot.

Chasing Eden is about the seekers all around us, about Americans seeking their Promised Land, their utopia out on the horizon — which by definition, is ever receding before us. In Chasing Eden we meet a gathering of Americans – the Shakers in the twilight of their utopia; the Wampanoags confronting the Pilgrims; the God-besotted landscape painters who taught Americans that in wilderness was Eden; and 40,000 Africans newly freed from slavery granted 40 acres and a mule – only to be swiftly dispossessed. These and other seekers were on the road to find out, all united by their longing to find in America “a revolution of the spirit.”

Howard Mansfield is the author of nine books about preservation, architecture, and history, most recently Summer Over Autumn (Bauhan 2017). He has contributed to the New York Times, the Washington Post, Historic Preservation, and Yankee. He and his wife, writer Sy Montgomery, live in a 130-year-old house in Hancock, New Hampshire.

Wreaths Across America

Wreaths Across America

12/13/2021 - 12/14/2021 - 12:00 am at

Remember, Honor, and Teach about our nation’s veterans, service members and their families in 2021.

“Wreaths Across America” will make a stop locally in Brattleboro on Monday & Tuesday, December 13th & 14th (more info to come!)

You can sponsor a live, handmade balsam wreath for $15 at www.wreathsacrossamerica.org. Each sponsorship goes toward a veteran’s wreath that will be placed on the headstone of an American hero as we endeavor to honor all veterans laid to rest on Saturday, December 18, 2021, as part of National Wreaths Across America Day.

To donate on-line go to www.wreathsacrossamerica.org

National Text to Donate from AT&T Veterans: text WREATH22 to 20222 on your mobile phone

——————————————————–

Wreaths Across America’s mission to Remember, Honor and Teach lasts all year long, far beyond the single day in December when we coordinate wreath-laying ceremonies, all throughout the year, Wreaths Across America works, in a number of ways, to show our veterans and their families that we will not forget—we will never forget.

Remember our fallen veterans.

When a volunteer places a wreath on a veteran’s grave on National Wreaths Across America Day, we encourage them to speak that veteran’s name aloud, thank them for their service and sacrifice, and reflect on that person and their life along with our wreath-laying ceremonies. At all cemeteries throughout the country, WAA also holds special memorial ceremonies.

Honor those who serve.

The group participates in veterans’ events throughout the year and has a veteran liaison on staff to work with local veterans’ organizations, as well as public outreach through Veterans Day and Memorial Day programs, public service announcements, press coverage and the WAA website.

Teach our children the value of freedom.

Wreaths Across America is committed to teaching younger generations about the value of their freedoms and the importance of honoring those who sacrificed to protect those freedoms.

Our Mobile Education Exhibit as well as our “escort to Arlington” (convoy of wreath delivery trucks to Arlington National Cemetery) stop at many schools. We offer learning experiences, interactive media projects and opportunities for schools, 4-H, scouts, and other youth groups to participate in our efforts.

On the Tip-lands in Maine where the tips of balsam fir trees are harvested to become veterans wreaths for Wreaths Across America Day, replica dog tags of thousands of replica veterans dog-tags create a living memorial of fallen veterans living back to other fallen veterans.
