War Letters - Veteran's Day Program

Thursday, November 11, 2021

Dramatic, in costume readings by members of the 10th Mountain Division WWII reenacting group, War Letters brings to life vivid eyewitness accounts from the Revolutionary War to the Gulf War of famous battles, intimate declarations of love and longing, poignant letters penned just before the writer was killed, and heartbreaking "Dear John" letters from home.

Dramatic, in costume readings by members of the 10th Mountain Division WWII reenacting group, War Letters brings to life vivid eyewitness accounts from the Revolutionary War to the Gulf War of famous battles, intimate declarations of love and longing, poignant letters penned just before the writer was killed, and heartbreaking "Dear John" letters from home. The best of these letters transcend the subject of war; they are about love, perseverance, honor, passion, and faith. Most were unpublished, many rescued from oblivion in attics and basements. Read by our live cast, they are illustrated with a blend of dramatic archival footage and photographs, evocative recreations, and images of those who wrote, and those who read, letters from American battlefronts.
