ICC Adult Community Programs Hosts Author Reading, Book Signing for Civil War Fathers

As incredible as it may seem, Civil War veterans fathered children who fought in World War II. Civil War Fathers by Tim Pletkovich is the amazing story of eight families who share a unique commonality … World War II veterans who had Civil War fathers. World War II veterans talk about their lives with their elderly Civil War fathers during the 1920s and 30s, and how the difficult years of the Great Depression did much to prepare them for their own military service.

Find out from the author himself how this book evolved from an interview project involving middle school children in Peoria.
