ABOUT THE EVENT:
We hope you’re excited to hear from this month’s featured speaker, Steven Cowie.
When Hell Came to Sharpsburg investigates how the battle and its armies wreaked emotional, physical, and financial havoc on the people of Sharpsburg. For proper context, the author explores the savage struggle and its gory aftermath and explains how soldiers stripped the community of resources and spread diseases. Cowie carefully and meticulously follows fortunes of individual families – ordinary folk thrust into harrowing circumstances – and their struggle to recover from their unexpected and often devastating losses.
