Seneca County and The Civil War

The “Seneca County And The Civil War” book written by Mr. Walter Gable Gift is this week’s Gift Shop highlight.

Mr. Gable has been the Seneca County Historian for approximately 16 yrs now. He has written several books that we also sell here at the Historical Society.

The first part of this book talks about the many companies in which Seneca County men volunteered to serve and the interesting stories of several of these soldiers. One of these stories tells about William Cross and five of his sons who all served in the War. Many other stories are told in the book.

The second part of the book talks about what was happening in Seneca County during the war years. Farmers enjoyed some of their greatest prosperity as wheat prices soared.

Susan B. Anthony Gift Package.

The Lily was the first U.S. newspaper edited by and for women. It was published from 1849 to 1853 by Amelia Jenks Bloomer (1818–1894), before she sold the newspaper to Mary Birdsall in 1854. While the newspaper initially focused on temperance, it soon broadened its focus to include the many issues of women’s rights activists in the 1850s. It grew in its distribution because of its discussion of bloomers, a comfortable fashion popularized by Bloomer in the paper.

In 1848, The Lily developed as a publication for “home distribution” among the women who belonged to the Seneca Falls Ladies Temperance Society in response to their feeling marginalized by the larger temperance movement. Enthusiasm for the project quickly faded, however. Amelia Bloomer did not want to see the paper die, and so she took on responsibility for editing and publishing the paper. Bloomer’s initial interest was not in women’s rights but in temperance, and this topic featured prominently in its early issues, even after the paper detached from the Temperance Society. Bloomer believed that women writing in pursuit of reform was less unseemly than giving speeches or lectures.
