Abby Eller on “Shoes for Man and Beast During the Civil War”
Learn about how two great 19th century inventor-businessmen made possible the mass production of horseshoes, boots, and shoes for the Union armed forces in the field.
Abby is president of the Peninsula Civil War Round Table, and an enthusiastic amateur history buff.
The January 18 meeting will include a big Civil War book raffle, $2 per raffle ticket. The raffle will be held immediately after the main topic presentation.
