Event: John Zinn presents ^"The Mutinous Regiment: The 33rd NJ in the Civil War"
Time: 11:00 am -- 1:00 pm ET (UTC/GMT -5)
Location: Secaucus Public Library, Secaucus, NJ

John Zinn discusses his book detailing the 33rd New Jersey regiment's formation in the midst of the draft riots of 1863 and its three campaigns under General Sherman in 1864 and 1865. Based on original source material, the book vividly describes the experiences of the soldiers in a regiment that lost 25 percent of its recruits to desertion even before leaving New Jersey, and then effectively walked from Chattanooga to Washington, D.C., by way of Atlanta and Savannah.
