In his new book, “Civil War in Pittsburgh: Forge of the Union,” Ben Avon resident and Post-Gazette reporter Len Barcousky describes events in Southwest Pennsylvania during the Civil War. The public is invited to a free event to hear Barcousky tell these stories originally chronicled in Pittsburgh's major newspapers of the era.
Signed copies of the book will be available for purchase.
The event will be held at the Community Presbyterian Church of Ben Avon Fellowship Hall, 7501 Church Ave. on Wednesday, Sept. 25. Dinner will be served at 6 p.m.(reservations requested by calling (724)935-1754) followed at 7 p.m. by Barcousky. There will be a free will offering.
