Clermont County Public Library – Deep Devotion, Different Causes: The Barlows and the Gordons in the Civil War and Beyond

Deep Devotion, Different Causes: The Barlows and the Gordons in the Civil War and Beyond, Owensville, May 3, 6:30 p.m.
• Two young combat officers fought each other on opposite sides in the Civil War. One was a New England Yankee radical elite and the other sprang from the Deep South. Each citizen soldier was deeply devoted to his cause and to his wife. A battlefield twist of fate joined their lives forever. The courageous wives were unusual because they, too went along to war. You will see conflict, love, heroism, and irony in this utterly fascinating story that illustrates two very different threads in our national heritage.
