In her April 27 program at the River Falls Public Library, singer and storyteller Judy Cook will weave excerpts from her great-great-grandparents’ letters to each other with favorite songs of the Civil War to tell the story of those whose lives were torn apart.
Cook’s great-great-grandparents, Gilbert and Esther Claflin found themselves separated from each other and struggling with the challenges posed by the war.
Judy accompanies excerpts from Esther’s letters with the most sentimental songs of the era, and Gilbert’s words to his wife with better known Civil War music.
