Point of Interest Details

Doctor Tarbell (1838-1895) fought in major battles during the Civil War, including Bull Run, Antietam, and Chancellorsville. After escaping from a prisoner-of-war camp, Tarbell returned home to Groton, New York to marry his childhood sweetheart, Mary Conant (1838-1899). The wartime letters exchanged by the couple inspired a 2013 exhibit, I Shall Think of You Often: The Civil War Story of Doctor and Mary Tarbell, at the New York State Museum.
