Columbia County Historical Society Lecture & Book Signing w/ Glenn Pearsall

The Columbia County Historical Society presents a lecture & book signing with Adirondack Historian and Author, Glenn Pearsall.

Pearsall will speak about his new fiction book, “Leaves Torn Asunder.” Based on true events, Pearsall’s research included diaries, soldiers’ letters home, visits to Civil War battle sites and historical documents such as the Fugitive Slave Act of 1850. Pearsall researched the lives of several local men who fought in the Civil War, but didn’t want to write another book about “dates and statistics.” The challenge, with writing a novel, he said, was bringing the story to life through speech and mannerisms.
