Framingham's Civil War Hero: The Life of General George H. Gordon.
April 20, 2012
George H. Gordon, a resident of Framingham, and active member of the Boston community in the mid 1800's, played a prominent role in the Civil War. Until now, however, his contributions had been largely overlooked by historians. Framingham Town Historian Fred Wallace will trace Gordon's life from his childhood in Framingham to West Point, through the Mexican-American War of 1846-48, transition to civilian life as an attorney in Boston, and finally through the tumultuous years of the Civil War.
