Hell, Heaven or Hoboken by Christmas chronicles the experiences of a young farm boy from Schuyler County, Illinois as he participated in the three main American campaigns of World War I. George Maurice Thompson, author Robert Lambert's grandfather, kept a diary during his time as a soldier in World War I. Years later, he wrote a memoir based on the diary. Lambert combines these, with his own commentary to give context, to create one soldier's story in this consequential time in history.
Robert Lambert lives in Rushville and has had several careers, including teaching. His passion since an early age has been studying history.
The event is free and everyone is invited.
