Sally J. Scott  will read from and talk about Some of Our Yesterdays,  the recently published Civil War memoir written by her great-great grandfather, Charles Seton Lindsay.  Personable and engaging from the very first page,  “Charles Seton Lindsay unfolds the rich details of his enlistment and coming-of-age in the Union Army with rare candor and a flair for storytelling. Whether he’s relating the escapades of his faithful servant Pip or his own test of survival at the Battle of Fair Oaks, Lindsay’s descriptions crackle with insight, wit, and adventure.”--Delia Ray
