This is the story of four friends who enlisted in the 17th Connecticut Volunteer Infantry. They marched, tented, and fought together every day on the hard road from Connecticut to Gettysburg where on the fateful day of July 1, 1863 one of them would be killed, two wounded, and only one left standing. Their story is based on their letters, primary and period source documents. The program is illustrated with contemporary and period images. This program was awarded a 2011 Connecticut League of History Organizations Award of Merit in June 2011.
