General George Henry Gordon

I think we all know that George Henry Gordon was a Union Army general during the Civil War and that he fought at Antietam. After the war though, he went back to being a lawyer in Boston and wrote a few history books about the Civil War. He and his family lived at 936 Central Street, Framingham in a house built in 1850.

If you want to know a lot more about general Gordon, reading "Framingham's Civil War Hero:: The Life of General George H. Gordon (Civil War Series)" by Fred Wallace is probably a good first step.
