Finding Your Veteran

A Bennington Historical Society Presentation

Learn how to uncover the story of your family veteran using Internet sources, books and local hard copy resources.  Find out the details of their service – where they entered the service, their unit, where they went and what they did upon return. Whether they served in the Revolutionary war to present conflicts, their story can be traced.

Robert Tegart will lead you in this virtual Zoom discussion to discover all these family stories to honor our veterans.
