The Washington County Historical Society is set to conduct a Battles and Brews Tour through Northern and Central Washington County, on September 8th, from 9 am to 5 pm. The trip’s focus is the contribution Washington County’s people made to the Civil War effort.
Traveling north from Greenwich, the tour bus will visit Salem, Granville, and Whitehall. After lunch in Whitehall, the tour will continue on to the Hartford Recruiting Center where a first person performance of Rice Bull, a Union Army Soldier in the Civil War and author of the book, Soldiering: The Civil War Diary, will take place. The trail turns south to Hudson Falls to visit memorials at Union Cemetery.
A box lunch will be provided as well as sampling from local micro-breweries. The tour costs are $50 for Historical Society members and $60 for non-members.
