Placeholder Image
NEW GLARUS - The New Glarus Public Library, in collaboration with the New Glarus Historical Society, hosts Wisconsin author Eric Schlehlein and his program "Forged in Blood: How the Iron Brigade Earned its Metallic Moniker."

The 40-minute program tells the story of more than 3,000 Wisconsin boys, including New Glarus founder Fridolin Streiff, who served in the Iron Brigade during the Civil War. This brigade suffered the highest casualties of any brigade during the war.

The program will be at 6 p.m. Sept. 18 in the New Glarus Home Green Room, 600 2nd Ave. After the program, there will be time to talk with the author and purchase copies of "Black Iron Mercy," a traditionally published novel of the Civil War.

This event is free. For more information, contact the library at 608-527-2003.
