Presented by James Wudarczyk.
Local historian and author James Wudarczyk has resurrected a number of significant pieces of our heritage from the antebellum period and the dark days of the Civil War. His address will focus on some largely over-looked events and give us a glimpse of what Pittsburgh was like during the1850s and 1860s.
Wudarczyk, a member of the Lawrenceville Historical Society, is the author of Until the Morning Cometh: Civil War Era Pittsburgh and several other books and articles. In 2015, he and Joann Cantrell compiled a photographic history titled Lawrenceville for Arcadia books.
