Starksboro Historical Society & Starksboro Meeting House Civil War Flags Program

Civil War speaker and author, Don Wickman, gave a slide show to a group of 30 people on Thursday, September 28, 2006 in the Starksboro Village Meeting House. It was fascinating to hear stories about the men behind the flags that are being preserved.

Starksboro residents and Civil War re-enactors, Mike and Debbie Blakeslee, also joined us in period regalia. They displayed several flags and spoke about their re-enactor group representing a regiment from upstate New York. Kevin Hanson set up an incredible display with Civil War artifacts from his grandmother's grandfather, Joel Varney Carpenter (1845-1907).
