Tales of the 10th Program Nov. 8 in Stratham, NH

Tales of the 10th Program Nov. 8 in Stratham, NH

This free program begins at 7 p.m. at the Stratham Fire Station Community Room in Stratham, NH. 

The Stratham Historical Society, jointly with Wiggin Memorial Library will present a program by Jeff Leich, “Tales of the 10th: The Mountain Troops and American Skiing.”  This visual history tells the story of the 10th Mountain Division in World War II, the unique unit conceived by New England Skiers and recruited from the ranks of civilian skiers by the National Ski Patrol. Three regiments of mountain troops trained extensively in skiing and mountaineering in the Colorado Rockies, then compiled a distinguished combat history in Italy. Its veterans had an important influence on the postwar development of American skiing.

Leich has been the Executive Director of the New England Ski Museum in Franconia since 1997.  He is also the editor of the New England Ski Museum Journal. 

The program will kick off at 7 p.m., shortly after a meeting at 6:30 p.m. of the Stratham Historical Society members. This program is free to the public at the Stratham Fire Station, Morgera Community Room (rear of the building), corner of Winnicutt Road and Portsmouth Avenue, Stratham. There will be parking on site. 

The event is finished.
