Yantic Cemetery Civil War Tour

 10/21/2023 @ 10:00 am

Local Civil War author and historian Vic Butsch gives visitors a fascinating walk through Yantic Cemetery, the resting place for 383 Civil War Veterans. Each soldier who fought in that war had their own reasons for joining the effort, and each had their own stories to tell. Vic will give voice to the stories of several of those unknown heroes, as well as giving a glimpse of what life was like in the 1860s. Also, be prepared, as not all the soldiers you will meet fought for the North. You will also visit the “Andersonville Circle” and learn of an outstanding effort, following the war, made by the City of Norwich, not done by any other city in the nation. The walk is 1 hour long and no pets are allowed in the cemetery. If you park in the Cemetery, please be careful of small headstones. Sponsored by Vic Butsch.
