Civil War Fathers: Sons of the Civil War in World War II

Herbert Hoover Presidential Library and Museum
West Branch, IA

Sunday, November 10, 2019 - 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.

This book, Civil War Fathers: sons of the Civil War in World War II, is the story of eight American families whose fathers fought in the Civil War and whose sons and daughters fought in World War II. It evolved from an interview project involving middle school children in Peoria, Illinois, into an amazing book encompassing almost 100 years of American history in two generations.

Pletkovich spent 25 years as a secondary school teacher in New York and Illinois as well as a baseball scout for the Chicago Cubs and an analyst covering the Boston Red Sox for WATDin Marshfield, Massachusetts. 

Talk is free with paid museum admission.
