Billy Yank - Common
Billy Yank - Common Soldier for the Union
Batesville Memorial Public Library
Thursday, Oct. 23, 6:00 PM
Kevin Stonerock presents this program at the library, starting at 6:00 pm. The program "Billy Yank" concerns an actual soldier from Henry County, Indiana named William H. Fentress. The presentation is set in the year 1864 with a battle-weary Fentress home on leave from the Union Army. Although the character portrayed was a real individual, much of the presentation deals with issues or items which would have been common to most northern soldiers of the Civil War. These include camp life, battlefield experiences, army humor, food, equipment, music, weapons, uniforms and the home front. The program objective is to bring the audience as close as they will ever come to visiting with a real veteran of the War Between The States and to give them a better understanding of the men who wore the blue.  This is a free program for the public. Sponsored by Batesville Memorial Public Library.
