Letters Home to Sarah Book Signing Event
Book Signing event for "Letters Home to Sarah" edited by Kevin and Patsy Alderson.
November 15, 7:00 p.m. at Community Room of Sun Prairie Public Library, 1350 Linnerud Drive.

The Aldersons, at auction, bought a box containing 165 letters written by Guy Taylor to his wife Sarah. Taylor enlisted in Company F of the 36th Wisconsin Infantry from Town of Bristol. These are letters from this 23 year old young father to his 19 year old wife. The Aldersons did research at the Sun Prairie Historical Library and Museum. Also in the same unit as Guy Taylor was Dewitt Atkins who will be included in August 13 Cemetery presentation "Voices from the Past". Guy Taylor was "aid" to Dr. E. J. Woodward of Sun Prairie.
