Pittsburgh author and Civil War historian Ernest D. Spisak will present a program at Cochranton Area Public Library on October 18 at 1:00 in the library’s Community Room. The focus of the program will be his recent book, Pittsburgh’s Forgotten Civil War Regiment; a history of the 62nd Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry & the men who served with distinction. The 62nd regiment fought in many of the major battles of the war, including Fredricksburg, Chancellorsville, Gettysburg, and The Wilderness. The eleven companies in the unit were formed mainly by volunteers from Allegheny County, but also from Clarion and Armstrong counties.
Mr. Spisak lets the men of the 62nd speak for themselves, describing in letters home, the hardships of long marches and camp life, the homesickness, the deaths, defeats, and the victories that defined their experience. When the survivors returned to Pittsburgh in July, 1864, their contribution to the victory faded quickly and no comprehensive published history of their efforts was ever published until now. Mr. Spisak will have copies of his book available for purchase and signing.

The Board of Trustees, employees, and volunteers of Cochranton Area Public Library would like to express their sadness on the passing of Deanna Gray, who was the director of the library from 1973 to 2007. She was a key person in the development of the library over the years and her enthusiasm and wisdom will be missed.
