The Amazing Men of the 55th Massachusetts by Nick Smith - Tuesday May 22 - 7:15 p.m. at the Pasadena Central Library

Nick Smith, President of the Pasadena Civil War Round Table,  stumbled across the regiment's story of the Amazing Men of the 55th Massachusetts in  two odd places: Mountain View Cemetery in Altadena and the museum at the Shiloh battlefield. That struck Nick as very odd at the time, since the regiment wasn't formed until a year after Shiloh, but that's part of the story. Don't miss the fascinating Civil War story by master storyteller, Nick Smith

On the left is Thomas Ellsworth. On the right is Andrew Jackson Smith. Both were eventually awarded the Medal of Honor for actions in battle as part of the 55th.
