7/10/2012 - The Agawam Public Library presents: Five Minutes at Gettysburg,” presented by Wendell Haire

The Agawam Public Library is pleased to present the program:  “Five Minutes at Gettysburg,” presented by Wendell Haire on Tuesday, July 10, 2012, at 7:00 p.m. 


            The Battle of Gettysburg was the largest battle of the Civil War, which lasted three days and claimed over 50,000 casualties from both the Union and the Confederacy.  Haire believes that the outcome of the fighting of Gettysburg was determined by certain events, that though seemingly insignificant in nature, led to the Union victory.  Many of these events happened within the first five minutes or less during this battle.


            To register for this program, please call (413)-789-1550 x4, or online at www.agawamlibrary.org.  This event is part of the Adult Summer Reading Program, “Between the Covers,” which is sponsored by the Agawam Center Library Association, the Agawam and Massachusetts Cultural Councils, the Boston Bruins, the Massachusetts Library System, and the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners.
