On Saturday, December 2 at 2:00 author Carolyn Ivanoff will be at the Danbury Museum and Historical Society for a book program and signing for her book We Fought at Gettysburg. The program will focus on twelve men from the regiment. These men fought for their lives, lost friends, and suffered themselves at Gettysburg. Their sacrifices are still with us today and from them we inherited great social and medical advances. Because of their sacrifices we understand the hidden costs of war, and that not all wounds are visible. Their stories illustrate the meaning that their lives and experiences have for our generation today.
This event is FREE and open to all and books will be available to purchase.
The Berkshire Jazz Orchestra will present a variety of popular seasonal songs in a one-hour concert from 7:30-8:30 PM at the Danbury Museum on Tuesday, December 19.

Our popular vocalist, Jan Maki, will treat the audience to well known melodies like Jingle Bells, White Christmas, Winter Wonderland, Baby Its Cold Outside, and Let It Snow. "'Tis The Season" for celebration.
The BJO in concert will raise your spirits to the occasion. Make plans to join in the toe-tapping merriment happening on Tuesday, December 19 at the Danbury Museum!
The museum is located at 43 Main Street and the concert will be held in Huntington Hall, the modern brick building.
