Historian & Author Speaks

Time: 7:00 PM
Place: Brooks Memorial Library, Brattleboro, VT (about 19 miles from Keene)
Price: Free
Ages: older crowd

Michael Shay is a superior court judge for the State of Connecticut. He is also an avid historian and the author of Stout-Hearted Lads : Maj. Gen. Clarence R. Edwards and the Yankee Division in the First World War.
Please join Judge Shay for a reading and discussion of his book.
The 26th ("Yankee") Division was a New England National Guard division, formed and brought to France by Maj. Gen. Clarence Ransom Edwards, who had a long and distinguished military career, despite his reputation as a "political" general. The reputation of both the division and the man are inexorably entwined, and his talk will explore this relationship, as well as the gallant service of the New England National Guard in France. Michael Shay holds a lifelong interest in history as well as in genealogy which led him to write his first book on the Yankee Division, A Grateful Heart: The History of a World War I Field Hospital. This book was followed by The Yankee Division in the First World War: In the Highest Tradition. He is currently at work on two other books, one about the Philippine War (1898-1902) and another one on the Yankee Division.
