The Attleboro that History Forgot: Civil War

On Saturday, May 25th at 1:00 pm, join Rick Foster as he delves into Attleboro’s role in the Civil War. Did you know that the oldest serving Civil War general came from Attleboro? That Attleboro was a prime manufacturing site for uniform buttons and other metal objects used by the Union Army? That one of America’s foremost abolitionists was born in Attleboro? Learn more about the little known connections between Attleboro and the war by long-time newsman and historian Richard Foster.

Discover the stories of local residents who served or contributed to the war effort, shedding light on their experiences in battles and during reconstruction.

Richard, who reported for a number of news outlets including The Woonsocket Call, Taunton Daily Gazette and The Sun Chronicle, has long nurtured an interest in local history inspired by his high school history teacher. He has also been a musician in a number of jazz and dance bands.
