The Lowell Historical Society will hold its annual meeting today. The meeting itself begins at 1 pm, but it will be followed at 1:30 pm by a public program on “Civil War Stories” about Lowell. This program will consist of a panel discussion featuring Jack Herlihy of the Lowell National Historical Park, Martha Mayo of the UMass Lowell Center for Lowell History, and me. Each of us will share several stories about little known or little appreciated Civil War era people and events related to the city.
The meeting and the program are both open to the public and will be held at Middlesex Community College’s Federal Building at 50 Kearney Square.
