No Freedom Shrieker: The Civil War Letters of Union Soldier Charles Biddlecom

Saturday, April 28, 2012

Time: 10:00am

Appearance/Signing Event

Among the piles of knickknacks, haystacks, dust, and debris abandoned in her historic barn, Katie Aldridge discovered a box containing the Civil War letters of Charles Freeman Biddlecom. Painstakingly transcribing and lightly editing more than 100 letters written by the soldier to his wife during his service, Aldridge resurrected the voice of the combat soldier. The tone and character of "Charlie's" detailed accounts of the war held Aldridge's attention and resulted in the the book "No Freedom Shrieker: The Civil War Letters of Union Soldier Charles Biddlecom."
 
Katie is a marathoner, traveling from her historic farm in Upstate New York to host a book signing at the Gettysburg Battlefield Museum bookstore on Saturday April 28th at 10 am, before competing in the Gettysburg North South Marathon on Sunday April 29th.
