Spe­cial to the Whig

Would you call your­self a Civil War his­tory buff? Ce­cil County Pub­lic Li­brary of­fers many re­sources to help you learn all about this tur­bu­lent time in our na­tion’s past, with­out spend­ing a dime.

On our web­site, you can use the on­line re­source “U.S. His­tory in Con­text” to read the Get­tys­burg diary of a young Union sol­dier or some of Robert E. Lee’s per­sonal letters.

Ac­cess our dig­i­tal ser­vice, Hoopla, to watch a doc­u­men­tary about the search for Lin­coln’s killer, or down­load an au­dio­book about the war’s great­est bat­tles. If you’d rather stop in to see us at one of the branches, we’ve got more than enough to keep you oc­cu­pied.

At the Ch­e­sa­peake City Branch Li­brary at 6:30 p.m. on May 10, author and his­to­rian David Healey will share Civil War his­tory unique to Ce­cil County and Mary­land.

If you can’t make it to this spe­cial event, be sure to check out one of Healey’s grip­ping historical nov­els: “Sharp Shooter,” “Rebel Train” or “Rebel Fever.” These fast-paced reads will make you feel like you’re right in the mid­dle of the ac­tion!
