Zachary Bodnar, a student at The Gunnery in Washington, will present a lecture, "Gunn's Soldiers: Tales of Civil War Soldiers from the Gunnery," May 19 at noon.

The program, to be held at the Gunn Memorial Library on Wykeham Road, will focus on the stories of two soldiers and their friends, as well as other students mentioned in the letters of Charles Goodyear.

Zachary has compiled his research into a book to be available for purchase.

Patrons can also view "Letters from the Battlefield: Stories of Washington's Civil War Soldiers" on exhibit at Gunn Memorial Library next door to the library.
