2011 Annual Meeting

Date: Sunday, October 16th

Time: 4:00 p.m.

Place: Pond Village Church, Brookfield, Vermont

What: Civil War reenactment of the September, 1862, “War Meeting” and Civil War exhibit. A potluck supper will follow the reenactment and annual meeting.

The Brookfield Historical Society has been participating in the state’s four-year commemoration of the Civil War with an exhibit and related programs. More than 170 men served from Brookfield.

In September of 1862, twenty-eight men enlisted on the same day, and thru our research, we have been able to identify them. This is an interesting and vital part of our town’s history.

The meeting on October 16th is a reenactment of that day and is being held at the church where it took place in 1862. The Civil War exhibit will also be at the church for all to see.
