Mary Ann Lewis Bronson watched over the household in Connecticut as her husband of 5 weeks, Dr. George Bronson, marched off to war with the 11th Connecticut Volunteer Regiment. Now, 150 years later, George and Mary Ann’s story comes to life as their great, great, granddaughter, Mary Lou Pavlik, assumes the role of her ancestor and namesake. “Mary Ann” shares her opinions and observations of the War from a Northern lady’s point of view and relates her husband’s harrowing experiences through original letters.
