Editor Janet Croon to Sign the Newly Released Civil War Diary of LeRoy Wiley Gresham – "The War Outside My Window"

When: Sat., Nov. 17, 1 p.m. 2018

LeRoy Gresham was born in 1847 to an affluent and prominent slaveholding family in Georgia . As a child he suffered a horrific leg and back injury that left him an invalid. Educated, inquisitive, perceptive, and exceptionally witty, the 12-year-old began keeping a journal in 1860-just before secession and Civil War tore the country and his world apart.
