Charles McDowell married Nancy when she was 15 on Christmas Eve of 1860. Enlisting in the Union Army shortly thereafter, their letters tell of bullets, battles, marches, hangings, prostitutes, venereal disease, “clever women,” meeting President Lincoln, and the court marshaling of a cow. Their great-great granddaughter, Lisa Saunders, gives the audience a behind-the-scenes look into their letters and lives in her book, Ever True: A Union Private and His Wife.  For more information, contact Stephanie Lyon- Gould, Lymes' Senior Center Director,, (860)434-1605 ext. 240
