Warrenville and the American Civil War: 1864 in 48 Minutes

On Sunday, January 26th, at 2:00 p.m., at the Warrenville Public Library, the  Historical Society will host “1864 in 48  Minutes,” a program detailing the historic fourth year of the Civil War, month-by-month, highlighting local and national events.  Aided by a visual presentation, presenters will detail life in Warrenville and the events facing our country during the War.

As our nation continues to honor the 150th Anniversary of the Civil War, this multi-media talk is part of the Historical Society’s five year program “Warrenville & The American Civil War” which features the Warrenville men who volunteered to fight for the Union.

Stephen Bronson Jr. served as a captain in the 12th Cavalry from February 1862 through March 1864.  He re-enlisted in June of 1864 as a colonel of the 141st Cavalry.  His family had moved from New York to Warrenville in 1840 and were active members of the Warrenville Baptist Church.
