HISTORY BOOK CLUB AT THE JACKSON HOMESTEAD AND MUSEUM
September 18, 2014
Join the book club in discussing Battle Cry of Freedom, by James M. McPherson. This Pulitzer-Prize-winning work is a fast-paced narrative that integrates the political, social, and military events in the two decades from the end of America's war with Mexico to Lee's surrender at Appomattox. The New York Times described it as the "best one-volume treatment of its subject. . . . compellingly readable." The book club is free and open to all; new members are welcome. At the Jackson Homestead and Museum, 527 Washington Street, Newton 02458.
