St. Albans Raid calendar by local artists

Posted: Updated:

At the end of the Civil War, Confederates set their sights on St. Albans. The southern rebels broke out of Yankee prisons, fled north to meet up in Canada where they plotted to terrorize and pillage St. Albans. Twenty-two of them stormed the city, robbing banks, and trying to burn down the town.

The city is planning a huge commemoration next year for the 150th anniversary of the raid.

Tonight, we look at a calendar made by Vermont artists. We went to the Village Frame Shoppe and Gallery and talked to Richard Cummings who put together the calendar.
