Join WBA Director and local author and historian, Carson O. Hudson, Jr., as he presents an illustrated lecture on his new book, Yankees in the Streets: Forgotten People and Stories of Civil War Williamsburg.  Mr. Hudson's stories, anecdotes, and trivia bring to life the people and town of 19th century Williamsburg, both of which are mostly lost in the shadows of the restored 18th century town.  The program is held in the Hennage Auditorium at Colonial Williamsburg’s DeWitt Wallace Decorative Arts Museum (325 W.
