Peru library will host local Civil War author

Rediscover the reality of the Civil War in Illinois with local author, historian and researcher Rachael Mellen at 6:30 p.m., Thursday, May 20 via Zoom.

Mellen will discuss what led to her discovery of a series of letters written by a La Salle craftsman during his time serving under General William T. Sherman and highlighting what the letters reveal about life in the 1860s. Mellen will point out the parallels of our current pandemic to those experienced by families during the Civil War.
