Monthly General Membership Meeting  (General Membership Meeting)
7:00 pm
Program: "Between Home and the Front: Civil War Letters of the Walters Family", a book talk by Lynn Heidelbaugh and Thomas Paone.
 
Between Home and the Front: Civil War Letters of the Walters Family, by Lynn Heidelbaugh and Thomas Paone (Indiana University Press, 2022) provides a glimpse into the wartime experiences recorded in correspondence of an Indiana family. The family’s papers in the collection of the Smithsonian’s National Postal Museum are transcribed with an editorial approach to preserve the language of the originals that make apparent the writers’ literacy and period customs of correspondence. The letters by Private David Walters of the 5th Indiana Cavalry include details about life as a volunteer Union soldier in some of the lesser-known combat actions of the western theater, such as Morgan's Raid. His wife Rachel’s poignant replies document how she managed the household and a young child while becoming a hub of communication, often relaying messages between family members and receiving missives from David's brothers, Isaac and John Wesley, both of whom served with Indiana units. The presenters will discuss how they applied genealogical research to learn about the family’s circumstances and to contextualize their experiences of the war.
 
Lynn Heidelbaugh is a curator at the Smithsonian’s National Postal Museum, where she specializes in the history of the postal service, military mail, and the material culture of letter writing. Ms. Heidelbaugh has curated exhibitions including, Behind the Badge: The U.S. Postal Inspection Service (2014), and My Fellow Soldiers: Letters from World War I (2017), for which she received a Smithsonian Secretary’s Research Award. She is co-editor of Between Home and the Front: Civil War Letters of the Walters Family (Indiana University Press, 2022).
 
Thomas Paone curates several collections at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum, including the lighter-than-air, Pre-1945 US Navy, and Wright Brothers collections. Mr. Paone's research focuses on ballooning in the Civil War, as well as the use of airships and blimps in America. He is coauthor of Milestones of Flight: The Epic of Aviation with the National Air and Space Museum as well as Between Home and the Front: Civil War Letters of the Walters Family.
