Share article

PLAINFIELD – The Marshfield Historical Society and Jaquith Public Library presents “Vermont Women and the Civil War,” with Howard Coffin, May 10, 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m., Twinfield Union School Library. With nearly 35,000 of Vermont’s able-bodied men actively engaged in the Civil War, the monumental task of keeping Vermont’s 30,000 farms in operation became a women’s enterprise in the state. What was the impact of such change? Have there been long-lasting effects? For more information, call (802) 454-1680.
