Description

“Roho Delgado: Military Soldier and Galvanized Yankee” explores the Civil War through the history of one man at 1 p.m. Sunday. After being captured at the Battle of Antietam in 1862, “Private” Delgado, a prisoner of war and Confederate soldier, was given the choice of staying put, or going out west as a “Galvanized Yankee” to protect the telegraph lines. Discover the life and times of Mr. Delgado, including hands-on descriptions of his military uniform.
