Francis X. Galvin and Vern Taylor will speak on La Société des Quarante Hommes et Huit Chevaux (commonly known as the “40 & 8”) and the “Merci Box Car,”  which is preserved by the Society on  Manchester’s West Side.  This is in anticipation of the annual Celebration of Remembrance of the Merci Train which will be held on Sunday afternoon, September 21. The Gratitude Train came to America in 1949 as a sign of thanks from the people and regions of France for its postwar rebuilding assistance.

Please Note: We will be hosting this talk at the Dana Center on the Saint Anselm College campus.
