Sons of Old Monroe: The 140th N.Y. Volunteer Infantry
by Brian Bennett
Brian Bennett, author of three books relating to the 140th N.Y., will
discuss and share images associated with the service of this local Civil
War unit. Recruited in 1862 and composed of men from across Monroe County, including Greece, its story is at the same time typical and unique among Northern regiments. By war's end, the 140th had a well-earned reputation as an elite unit, due in large part to the key role it played at the battle of Gettysburg.
