Annual Pot Luck and Guest Speaker


Our guest speaker will be William McKone author of Vermont Irish Rebel.

The Springfield Art and Historical Society will feature Civil War re-enactor and author
William McKone who will transport the audience back 150 years, telling about the “surge” of new soldiers called up by President Lincoln in the summer of 1862. 

The meeting at the Miller Art Center begins with the pot-luck meal at 5:30 PM. (Bring a dish to share.) Afterwards Liam McKone in uniform will portray Captain John Lonergan, an Irish-born officer from Vermont caught up in these momentous events.

McKone is the author of Lonergan’s biography, Vermont Irish Rebel, and will have copies on hand for sale after the talk. He serves on the governor’s Sesquicentennial Commission and is president of the 18th Vermont Regiment, a living history and preservation unit that is organizing commemorative events around the state.
