Wolcott Historical Book Signing

    By on October 8, 2015

    The Wolcott Historical Society will present a book signing and program by Richard Camp, author of “Battle for the City of the Dead”.

    This book is about a Marine battalion’s fight to capture the Iraqi city of Najaf in 2004. The Marines had to fight through the largest Muslim cemetery in the world (into crypts, through grave stones) in 100+ degree heat, with little water. The insurgents were led by al Sadr, a religious thug of the worst sort.

    Dick writes oral history and the book is about personal accounts of young Marines and soldiers in the worst sort of conditions. The book has over a hundred color photos and maps to support the text.

    Last year Dick presented his personal memoirs as a commander of Lima-6 in Vietnam.

    This event will be held at the Carriage House Museum, Wolcott, 5994 Jefferson Street, on October 24, 2015, Saturday at 1:00 p.m. The program is free of charge, all are welcome. Refreshments to be served. Any questions, please call Norma Stewart, 315-594-9361.

    Join in on the conversation.
