Over There and Here: Salisbury and Its People During the Great War presented by Lou Buccerri

4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

A collaboration of  the Salisbury Association and Scoville Memorial Library

November 11, 2018 marks the 100th anniversary of the end of World War One. In many ways, it is a forgotten war, overshadowed by the magnitude of World War Two or the social upheaval of the Vietnam War. However, there are many present-day issues that are similar to those of the World War One era, including national security, civil liberties, immigration, and the U.S. role in the world. In a new exhibit, the Salisbury Association Historical Society recalls the changes that came to Salisbury and its people. Historical Society Chair Lou Bucceri will introduce the highlights of that exhibit and illustrate a bit of what life was like in town during that time.

Lou was a local middle school social studies teacher for 28 years. He works with the Salisbury Association and the Upper Housatonic Valley National Heritage Area to preserve and celebrate the heritage of Salisbury and the surrounding area.
