In honor of Veterans Day, this program will look at the fate of those who survived the Civil War and what their lives were like once the war was over, as well as compare their stories with those veterans who returned home from war in later wars. We will also present stories of those who sought to make a new life for themselves as ranchers, cowboys, and prospectors in the open spaces of the American West. After the presentation, there will be a roll call in honor of all the regiments, United States and Confederate, that fought at the Battle of Mansfield.
