Civil War Impact on NH

STRATHAM – The Stratham Historical Society and Stratham’s Wiggin Memorial Library will jointly sponsor “Our War: The Impact of the Civil War on New Hampshire” on Mon., November 12. The program will be presented by author, freelance writer, amateur historian and editor emeritus of the Concord Monitor, Mike Pride.

Mr. Pride served as editor of the Monitor for twenty-five years and managing editor for five years before that. During his editorship, the Monitor was frequently recognized for excellence and earned the first Pulitzer Prize awarded to a New Hampshire newspaper. Mr. Pride’s interest in war history has led him to co-author books titled “My Brave Boys”, a Civil War history, “Too Dead to Die”, a book about a man who survived the Baraan Dearh March, and “We Went to War”, providing World War II oral histories. He is presently concluding a second treatise on the Civil War titled Our War, in which he details the experiences of New Hampshire residents at well-known events and how these personal histories continue to resonate today.

The 7:00 p.m. program will commence immediately after a 6:30 p.m. business meeting of the Stratham Historical Society in the Morgera Meeting Room at the fire station directly behind the Stratham Historical Society building at the corner of Portsmouth Avenue (Route 33) and Winnicutt Road. It is free and open to the public. There will be light refreshments and ample free parking.
